Tim Ryan comments on possible presidential run

Posted: Updated:

As the November midterms approach, Democrats are hoping to overtake Republicans in one or both houses of Congress, and Valley Congressman Tim Ryan could be at the forefront of that movement.

Questions about his political future are swirling as they have for several years.

Many are wondering if he'll make a push to lead his party in the House or even run for the White House.

An article in Politico two days ago talked about how Ryan is "tired of losing," but he said hasn't determined which option is best to help Democrats win again.

"Me, it's about getting people into office that represent working class people, the people who take a shower after work, that I have been forgotten largely in our country," said Ryan as he attended the Vienna Township 9/11 Memorial Ceremony. "I want to try to build a coalition in Congress and of senators who remember those people and work everyday for them and how that plays out, I'm not really sure yet." 

Ryan tried unsuccessfully to overtake Nancy Pelosi as head of the House Democratic Caucus in 2016.
