The Hill put a number on the Democrats’ current disarray: as many as 43 may line up for a challenge to President Trump in the 2020 presidential race.
Political observers and voters alike thought the 17 Republican candidates for president in 2016 were too many. A new Hill article suggests the country may be in for as many as 43 Democratic candidates in 2020.
That’s not a typo.
On Monday morning, The Hill broke down the “43 people who might run against Trump in 2020.”
The list includes:
- 14 U.S. senators (more than one-quarter of the Senate’s 48 Senate Democrats)
- 6 businessmen and women (Mark Zuckerberg, Mark Cuban, Tom Steyer, Sheryl Sandberg, Howard Schultz, and Oprah Winfrey)
- 5 U.S. governors (more than one-quarter of the nation’s 16 Democratic governors)
- 4 Obama administration figures (ex-VP Joe Biden, Michelle Obama, ex-Labor Sec. Tom Perez, and ex-HUD Sec. Julián Castro)
- Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (really)
The Hill‘s list covers almost every Democrat who could conceivably run in 2020. What The Hill‘s article doesn’t answer is how the Democrats sort out a party that is currently without a leader or a clear direction for the Donald Trump era.
Can the party whittle 43 candidates down to one? They have about three years to do it.
