Normally, at this point during a presidential primary, the field is shrinking. Instead, more Democrats are getting into the race.
Within the last month, two more candidates have joined the race. Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick announced a run for the White House a couple weeks ago. And just this week, the former mayor of New York City, Michael Bloomberg officially got into the race.
Candidates continuing to get into the race this late isn’t a good sign for the party. It appears that even with such high-profile candidates such as Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, the Democratic race is still extremely fluid without a clear front runner. This isn’t a good sign for a party dead set on defeating President Donald Trump in 2020.
It also looks as if this lack of a front runner and expanding field is starting to get to members of the Democratic National Committee.
Vice Chair of the DNC, Michael Blake, appeared on Fox News Tuesday. Bill Hemmer asked Blake about Tucker Carlson’s prediction that despite all of the “all-stars” currently running for Democratic nominee for president, Michelle Obama will eventually be the nominee.
Blake didn’t take too kindly to that prediction.
