Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is the latest Democrat to throw their hat in the ring for a hop, skip and a jump towards the White House. Senator Sanders making a bid for the White House no brings the democrat total to11 candidates. Bernie ran against Secretary Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primary as well.

Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey another 2020 hopeful and the prior mayor of Newark has thrown his hat in the ring. Booker a strong advocate for working class and one of Trumps biggest enemies, his entrance into the race should make this competition far more interesting. He has already been marked as the President Barack Obama 2.0.

Next candidate on the ever-growing list includes the former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro of Texas. Castro served as Mayor of San Antonio in 2009 and focused on specific education initiatives and reforms. Castro is currently the only Latino-American in the race, however that may change if Beto O ‘Rourke also from Texas decides to throw his hat in the ring for the Presidency later this year.

The self-made businessman John Delaney has also decided to run. Delaney has been a strong advocate for business and entrepreneurship. Mr. Delaney also was once the youngest executive and CEO at the New York Stock Exchange. A strong non-politician contender to battle Trump for the White House.

The first American Samoan is also competing for the nomination at the top of the 2020 ticket. Representative Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii has also placed a bid for the White House. Gabbard among being the first Samoan to seek a bid from a major political party she is also the first openly Hindu candidate. She has served her country by being a war hero stationed in Iraq. Many American believe Gabbard is the complete package for the presidency.

Senator Kamala Harris of California was one of the first politicians to challenge incumbent President Trump. Harris is right underneath Bernie when it comes to far-left progressive policies. Harris is the daughter of a Jamaican and Indian immigrants. Some of her most controversial campaign promises include Medicare for all and the legalization of Marijuana.

Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota announced her candidacy in the middle of a snow storm and has already been praised by the president for her ability to relate and connect with voters all over the country. As far as policy and promises go America has yet to see the true beliefs of her 

And lastly in the immensely diverse and large presidential field of hopeful Democrats is Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. Serving as an assisted to previous president Barack Obama and special advisor to the treasury secretary Warren is no stranger to battlefield of politics. Although Warren has made some negative press since announcing. Her stance on having Native American heritage backfired and now she has more or less been in damage control mode.

All of these candidates have announced and now are all vying for that one big presidential nomination from the Democratic party. The field is large and only expected to get larger closer to the primaries. Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has still yet to decide if he will shake up the field and run for the presidency as an independent. One thing is certain this should be one of the most interesting races in American history.
