There is one less candidate on the Dem side for 2020…..the crowd running for president is getting thinner by one….
Shortly after news broke that Kirsten Gillibrand likely wouldn’t meet the requirements for the next Democratic presidential debate, the New York Times reports the New York senator is dropping out of the 2020 race. Gillibrand, 52, tells the paper that missing the debate cutoff was a pivotal moment: “I think being able to have a voice on a debate stage, when other candidates have that, is really important,” she says. “And without it, I just didn’t see our path.” She added that she will eventually endorse someone else, though she hasn’t decided who yet, and while that person could be male or female she said: “I think that women have a unique ability to bring people together and heal this country. I think a woman nominee would be inspiring and exciting.”
There may be more departures after the next debate in Houston for some of the donor cash should dry up for some.
As Newsweek reports, the other 2020 candidates who have not yet qualified are: Tulsi Gabbard, Michael Bennet, Steve Bullock, Tim Ryan, John Delaney, Bill de Blasio, Marianne Williamson, Joe Sestak, and Wayne Messam……
Wayne Messam? Who the Hell is Wayne Messam?
AS per my tradition I shall let Queen show them the stage door exit….
The DNC has succeeded in allow only those corporatist candidates to qualify….Warren and Sanders are in because they are newsworthy…..the voter is getting fewer and fewer actual candidates.
Now the media will set about making the voter think that only the chosen few for Houston are capable of winning….that may be true but it is not the place of the media to decide whom the candidates will be.
The 10 candidates that have made the field for Houston are corporate shills…what is being packaged and sold as “centrists”.
Please do not let the media pick your candidate for you!
