2020 democratic presidential candidate: Tim Ryan

Alex Toth

Age: 45

Experience: U.S. Representative from OH-13 and OH-17 (2003-present)

Fun Fact: Ryan played quarterback for his varsity high school football team. 

Tim Ryan, a nine-term congressman and recent challenger to Nancy Pelosi’s position as Speaker of the House, is running his campaign primarily on bringing jobs to rural America. Ryan says that Democrats need to aggressively campaign in rural America, to try and win those voters back from Republicans.

As part of his plan to help the rural economy, Ryan wishes to expand automotive, wind, solar, and clean energy manufacturing to levels that would make the U.S. competitive with China. It still remains to be seen, however, whether Ryan’s campaign against Pelosi will help or hurt him in the coming primaries.
