So far, we have made progress in winnowing the candidates. Here’s who we have winnowed so far:
- Bernie Sanders
- Tulsi Gabbard
- John Delaney
- Seth Moulton
- Tim Ryan
- Mike Gravel
- John Hickenlooper
- Wayne Messam
- Andrew Yang
- Eric Swalwell
Needs reasons? Just search this blog for winnowing to find all the posts. That leaves us with this field remaining.
Except, I wasn’t quite sure who this guy is …
Reverse Google Image Search suggested Dr. Dorociak, a dentist from Sarasota or the deceased Daniel Judd of Gloucester, MA. I wouldn’t doubt that either of them may be running. I narrowed it down to an already-winnowed Tim Ryan or new-to-the-race NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio. Not quite sure, but it won’t matter by the end of this article. Spoiler alert!
Not pictured is former Alaskan Senator and current old man Mike Gravel, responsible for the coolest meme of the 2020 campaign so far.
This is really getting ridiculous. I can’t cut Democratic presidential candidates fast enough before more take their place. Here’s a recent poll from Emerson, and I have lined-out in red the candidates I have already eliminated.
Now we have Montana Governor Steve Bullock and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio entering the race. I hate to do it, but it’s time to cut three. Here we go.
I have been really lax on this recurring feature. I can’t afford to be. Candidates are streaming into the Democratic primary race. So let’s get you up to speed with a quick recap.
- I booted Mayor Pete from the race. I am so sorry I did that. He’s become one of my favorite candidates in the early going, although I’m not quite locked in on him yet.
- So I reinstated Mayor Pete, and …
- I bounced John Hickenlooper instead. Who? Exactly.
There may be less serious candidates to shed, but I feel I need to painfully rip a 2016 scab off now that has never fully healed. This candidate cannot be the Democratic candidate in 2020. I will not allow it.
Now that Beto O’Rourke is in the Democratic primary race, the rest of the field beto be ready for him. Get it? I know, that was a stretch. Sorry. But take a look at this real 2 acre crop circle in this field in Austin, Texas.
I guess you can say Beto is leading the field. Alright, I’ll stop.
There are already too many Democratic candidates for the 2020 Presidential race. So each month, I will reduce the field by one candidate through an announcement in this blog. If more keep joining the race, we may have to eliminate a candidate every two weeks. After my blog post, the candidate named in the post will be notified and expected to withdraw from the race. Maybe by the 2020 convention, we’ll have the field whittled down to a single, strong candidate to defeat Donald Trump in 2020.
The first candidate I am eliminating from the race is …
I voted early in the Illinois primary. See, I have proof. I have a sticker.
I voted with my middle daughter, which I thought was kinda’ cool. I did tell her it was a crime if she didn’t take a sticker. She bought it!
It also felt weird, but good, to be voting with one of my kids. How did she get to be 21 and why do I still have a much younger daughter not even in double-digits yet in age? What felt even weirder was knowing that she voted for me.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has backed off his pledge to support the party’s eventual nominee, regardless of who it is.
