Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) completely dismissed Robert “Beto” O’Rourke’s entry into the crowded Democratic field Thursday as “just one more” candidate vying for the party’s nomination in 2020.

“I want to get your reaction to Beto O’Rourke’s announcement that he’s running for president,” CNN’s Alisyn Camerota asked the Ohio senator.

“I have no reaction. I -- just one more, one more, one more gets in the race,” he replied. “Bring him in and it will be an interesting primary fight. 

Brown, who said last week that he would not be running, then went on to discuss what he hopes to see from Democratic candidates.

“My goal is to do what I’ve done all along and that is talk about the dignity of work and encourage my colleagues, I hope that every candidate does what a number have started to do, and that is make the narrative of the Democratic Party, talking to workers, the betrayal of this president, the betrayal of workers by this president, the phony populism by this president,” he said.

Camerota then pressed Brown as to whether he believed O’Rourke is “in a different category.”

“We’ll see,” Brown responded. “I don’t put any colleague in a different category. I think there are very bright people running from all across the political spectrum.”
