And folks it is NOT to early for these people to start the march for the nomination….
As we saw with last years Republican nomination sweepstakes?
Ya NEVER Know….
The question’s will be?
A Middle of the road establishment person?
A nominee over or under 60 years of age?
A Man or a Woman?
A politican, or Not?
…Democrats have never actually had to contend with more than one serious presidential candidate from the same state in the modern era, though the prospect has surfaced at times: before the 2016 field shaped up, New Yorkers were briefly worried that Cuomo would run against Hillary Clinton. In most cases featuring that kind of potential clash, one politician is quick to step aside for the other, as Cuomo did….
But never before has the home-state dynamic played out in so many states at once.
Many of the pre-2020 hot spots are progressive states with long histories of producing national-level Democrats.
In California, Harris and Garcetti have been rising on parallel tracks since before they showed up in Iowa at the same time to campaign for Barack Obama in 2008 as a 43-year-old San Francisco district attorney and a 36-year-old Los Angeles city council president.
But they are just the tip of the iceberg here. Rep. Eric Swalwell has raised eyebrows by appearing in Iowa multiple times in 2017 and Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, earned some buzz by appearing at a South Carolina Democratic Party event last month. Billionaire activist Tom Steyer has also kept the door open to a presidential bid.
They are joined by a handful of non-politicians who have been included in the presidential discussion, including entertainment mogul Oprah Winfrey, who has a home in Montecito. Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg of Facebook and Bob Iger of Disney have also been mentioned as possible candidates.
In New York, aside from Cuomo and Gillibrand, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio inserted his name with a December trip to Iowa. Two neighboring senators — New Jersey’s Cory Booker and Connecticut’s Chris Murphy — are also in the mix, likely to pull from a similar donor pool, and media market, if they run.
In Massachusetts, Sen. Elizabeth Warren may run — as might former Gov. Deval Patrick and Rep. Seth Moulton. In Washington state, Gov. Jay Inslee is making national noise, while Starbucks executive Howard Schultz is considered a possible outside contender. In Maryland, two long-shots could square off: Rep. John Delaney is already running, and former Gov. Martin O’Malley may run for a second time….
As I type this?
Joe Biden LEADS in the polls among Democrats for 2020…
Just wanted everyone to know that…
