Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), who is exploring a 2020 presidential run, said he supports fellow 2020 hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris’s (D-CA) plan to eliminate private health insurance in America during an interview with MSNBC on Tuesday.

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews asked Brown what he thought about running on a ticket in 2020 with Harris.

“Well, I don’t know. I’m not going to comment on a ticket,” Brown said. “But I’ll just say – I like Kamala. I was amazed that somebody called her un-American today for a proposal she had on health insurance – one of the billionaire candidates for president. So, I stand with her on that. We’ve stood together on a number of issues, and I think very highly of her.”

During a CNN town hall in Iowa, Harris said if elected president, she would support a Medicare For All plan, which would eliminate private health insurance in America.

If Harris’s proposal were to be implemented, more than 1.4 million Americans would lose their jobs, according to a report by America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP). That number includes more than 50,000 Ohio residents, where Brown lives.
