As of today there are 147 declared Democrats. Of them, Wikipedia tells me that 3 of them are serious. I know nothing about any of them. They are as follows:
John Delaney : Former Congressman from Maryland
Richard Ojeda : a W. Virginia State Senator who is also a fmr. Army Major
Julian Castro : fmr. HUD secretary under Obama and a fmr. Mayor
Right off the bat, none of these dudes feel right to me but I will do my due diligence and look more into them.
However, there are a couple of other people that are kind of interesting to me. They have not formally announced yet however. They are:
Tulsi Gabbard : U.S. Representative from Hawaii since 2013
Kamala Harris : U.S. Senator from California since 2017
Kirsten Gillibrand : U.S. Senator from New York since 2009
Elizabeth Warren : U.S. Senator from Massachusetts since 2013
All 4 of these ladies are interesting to me and I’m looking forward to digging into their credentials and voting records.
There is also Bernie and Corey Booker and a few others to discuss.. But all in good time.
