Are Sanders and Kander Making 2020 Moves Already?

The Missouri Democrat is opening offices in two crucial states, while the Vermont senator is scheduled to hold two events in New Hampshire on Labor Day.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and failed Missouri Democratic Senate candidate Jason Kander seem to be positioning themselves for possible 2020 runs already.

Kander’s nonprofit voting rights group Let America Vote announced that it will be opening five field offices, two of which will be located in New Hampshire and Iowa, the first two states to participate in the presidential primary process.

Let America Vote was started by Kander in February and its mission is “to fight back against proposals across the country that make it harder for eligible voters to exercise their constitutional right to cast a ballot.”

The Washington Free Beacon reported on the office openings on Thursday:

“The group announced in a fundraising email that it would be expanding operations in 2018 with new offices in Tennessee, Georgia, Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada, also likely to be an early primary state in the 2020 nominating process.”

While this is going on Sanders is scheduled to “hold two events in New Hampshire on Labor Day.”

The Hill reported on Sanders’ events, saying:

“Sanders will speak first at a breakfast in Manchester for New Hampshire’s AFL-CIO, an event that requires a $30 donation, his campaign arm announced on Thursday.”

“The senator will then head to a rally in Concord that is hosted by Rights and Democracy New Hampshire and is open to the public. Sanders will end the day with two other events in his home state of Vermont.”
