California Gov. Jerry Brown isn’t concerned that the increasingly diverse, women-dominated Democratic Party will chafe at having a white male nominee in the 2020 presidential campaign.

“What’s wrong with white men?” Brown, who has ruled out running himself, told the Associated Press.

Brown was asked for his thoughts on Joe Biden, Beto O’Rourke and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) leading the chatter about the 2020 Democratic field.

White men will “probably be running things for quite a bit of time,” Brown continued.

“Look, it’s not the skin color, it’s who’s the right person with the right set of qualities to lead the nation,” he told the AP.
