"I will do everything I can to elect a Democratic President and a Democratic Senate in 2020", Brown said in a statement. "That's why I'm confident it will continue to be a focus for Democrats in 2020, and I plan on making sure that happens".
His decision comes after recent visits to several early-voting states to highlight his worker-friendly policy agenda. He recently finished his tour of the early-primary states - Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and SC - and as recently as the weekend hinted that he was going to jump in.
Brown won with support throughout many blue-collar areas that Democrats had ceded to Trump.
He added: "It is how we beat Trump, and it is how we should govern".

Brown is now one of four Democrats who have announced in the last week that they would not run for President in 2020. But two Ohio Democrats close to Brown said that Biden's possible run was not the determining factor. Also, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, an independent from Vermont, said he'll run as a Democrat - as he did in 2016 - for the party's presidential nomination.
That could leave a lane relatively wide open for a pragmatic centrist like Biden, especially after New York's former mayor Michael Bloomberg, a high-profile middle-of-the-road politician, announced this week he will not be a candidate for the White House.
Antjuan Seawright, a South Carolina-based Democratic strategist who worked for Hillary Clinton's campaign in 2016, told Politico, "I don't think in our modern-day politics that any candidate can clear the field per se".
However, Brown declined to endorse other progressive initiatives popular among Democratic candidates, such as the "Green New Deal", "Medicare for All" and marijuana legalization. But Republican lawmakers in the Ohio House are fighting him on it, proposing to raise the fuel tax by just 10.7 cents on gasoline and 20 cents on diesel.
Brown said he was not deterred from running by the large number of Democratic candidates, money concerns or his status as a white male in a party that prizes diversity.
