Sherrod Brown Welcomes GOP, Nudges Dems To Pitch Tent in 2020
By ideastream's Brian Bull
With the Republican National Convention just months away, Ohio’s politicians are preparing to greet delegates, activists, and candidates to Cleveland.
Among them is Ohio Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown. Brown says he’s hopeful that some of the more controversial comments from the Republican campaign trail don’t make it into the RNC.
“I root for them to have a good convention, I root for them to nominate a candidate that does not engage in hate speech," says Brown. "I..mean, I think it’s great that Cleveland is hosting the RNC. I’m thrilled they’re coming here.
"I’m hopeful in four years the Democrats choose Cleveland.”
An estimated 50,000 people are expected to convene in Cleveland in July for the four-day event.
The 2016 DNC will be held a state away, in Philadelphia.
