WASHINGTON – Fresh off a bruising midterm battle, political observers are already looking ahead: At the 2020 presidential election.
A handful of Democrats are already jockeying to be on the 2020 ballot, with some hoping to capitalize on the momentum they generated from this year’s hard-fought midterm elections.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., has not been shy about expressing her interest in running against President Trump.
“After November 6th, I will take a hard look at running for president,” Warren said recently.
Beyond Warren, plenty of senators are expected to consider a bid for the White House: New Jersey’s Cory Booker, New York’s Kirsten Gillibrand, Virginia’s Tim Kaine, Minnesota’s Amy Klobuchar, California’s Kamala Harris, and Vermont’s Bernie Sanders.
“Well, it’s going to be fun to watch the Democratic presidential aspirants, of which we have a number, in the Senate,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters. “And Chuck (Schumer) might have some attendance problems from time to time, but it – it’ll be interesting to watch.”
One possible candidate getting a lot of buzz is Harris, who drew praise and condemnation during the Supreme Court confirmation fight over Brett Kavanaugh because of her tough questioning, which some called grand standing.
“Kamala Harris is the one who is sort of considered generating a lot of interest because she’s new… she’s sort of the fresh face,” Tom Bevan, co-founder and publisher of RealClearPolitics told Fox in an interview.
Harris has been out in the first in the nation caucus state of Iowa.
