While some analysts warn that there shouldn’t be a focus on 2020, now is really the best time to start thinking ahead. The presidential race will last for about a year and a half, so it would serve Democrats well now to survey their politicians, allow the best to rise to the top, and give America a good look at them.
And as this post is about the future of the Democratic Party and a number of names have already popped up. I would like to discuss them.
Additionally, this list illustrates the ongoing problems with the party:
- There are two few rising stars in the party. I can name some on one hand.
- Most of the people with big names in the party are in their 60’s or above.
I agree that the 2020 field already looks weak due to these reasons.
With that said, here is a list of 10+ candidates already being mentioned for 2020 (in no particular order).
