20 Days Ago…

I’ve continued the Power Ranking of the 20 Democratic Candidates for the 2020 Democratic Primary to be concluded on it’s 20th iteration the day of the 2020 Iowa Caucus.

Since the last list… Beto O’Rourke has finally announced and has outraised Bernie Sanders in a single day of his announced candidacy… Listed possible candidates, Eric Holder, Sherrod Brown and Michael Bloomberg have all announced they are indeed not running in 2020… Pete Buttigeig has impressed in townhalls and also in fundraising causing Democrats to give him a new/first look… A surprising topic many of the candidates have actually been asked is on Reparations for African-Americans and while most have taken a position, this was effective spurred when Marianne Williamson introduced the idea of $100 Billion over 10 years as her signature campaign promise.

Reminder, this is a “power ranking” and not a list of my favorites in the order I’d like them. But taking in the news cycle over the last 20 days and other pertinent data, this ranking is just a snapshot of where I think the candidates are and where the voters are in their likelihood to select them as the Democratic Nominee for the 2020 Presidential Race.

So don’t be mad at me. Tell your candidate to get better.

So without further adieu…
