Who Is Running For President In 2020?

With Sen. Kamala Harris having kicked off her campaign with a rally in Oakland, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand headed to New Hampshire this weekend fresh off a trip to Iowa, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren having already drawn crowds in several states, the race to 2020 is well underway.

And the field of candidates is getting crowded, with several Democrats having formed exploratory committees (which basically means they’re running). Then there are the Joe Bidens and Bernie Sanderses, who are rumored to be running, but haven’t officially made their bids.

All eager to beat a historically unpopular president — who has already raised over $100 million for his reelection campaign — ahead are the current Democratic contenders.

We will update this story as more information becomes available.

Sen. Kamala Harris

The former California attorney general has been criticized for her record as a prosecutor, but has embraced progressive programs such as Medicare for All. She’s a great example of the unprecedented diversity on the Democratic roster, with more women and people of color running than ever before.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand

While New York Sen. Gillibrand used to be a centrist politician, in recent years she has been a strong proponent of Medicare for All and universal paid family leave. Together with Sen. Harris, she introduced a bill attempting to combat the U.S.’ shockingly high maternal mortality rate.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard

Sen. Gabbard is a Bernie backer. She has received scrutiny for being friendly with Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and anti-LGBTQ+ comments (which she has since walked back).

Sen. Elizabeth Warren

The most recognized face in the field, the Massachusetts senator is looking to challenge Trump on trade and has proposed an “ultra-millionaire tax.” The DNA test she released in response to Trump’s “Pocahontas” comments is likely to be a subject of conversation on the campaign trail whether she likes it or not.

Julián Castro

The former San Antonio mayor and Housing and Urban Development secretary is the grandson of immigrants and has made strong statements against Trump’s border wall.
