Democratic U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown is starting the final leg of his tour of the early presidential primary and caucus states. As he visits South Carolina, Brown said he’s learned a lot as he gets closer to making a decision on a possible presidential run. 

Brown has been spreading his pro-worker message but said he’s learned about other concerns, such as funding for children’s initiatives.

“We undervalue children in this society, whether it’s a lack of funding for pediatric health, or for early childhood education and child care should be accessible and available to working class and middle class families,” Brown said. 

A statement from the Republican National Committee notes South Carolina overwhelmingly voted for President Donald Trump in 2016 and said Brown has a “far-left Democrat agenda.”

Brown will announce if he’s running for president by the end of the month.
