Who’s Running For President? Every Presidential Candidate (So Far) & What They’re All About
There’s nearly a year until the first caucus of the 2020 Presidential Election, and it’s still anybody’s game. Over 450 candidates have already registered to run, but if we ignore suburban fifteen-year-olds who thought it would be funny to register as “Seymour Butz,” unknown green party candidates who don’t understand that this is not the year to stage a symbolic protest vote, and Russian newsbots, there are roughly ten candidates of interest that have announced their candidacy early and a handful of exploratory committees that have been formed. A recent Washington Post-ABC poll shows that half of Democratic voters don’t have a candidate preference yet, and there’s no candidate with double-digit support. It’s never too early to pick your player, especially when the fate of our nation is on the line. We’ve put together a list of every candidate that’s announced their campaign and a few power players to keep an eye on, complete with what they’re all about. We Googled so you don’t have to. You’re welcome.
