BETWEEN NOW AND THE PRIMARY ELECTION OF APRIL 28TH OF 2020 THERE WILL BE MANY OPPORTUNITIES TO HEAR, READ ABOUT AND CHOOSE WHO YOU THINK WILL BE THE BEST CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT. PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS GIVEN SOME GOOD ADVICE ON THIS IMPORTANT SUBJECT.
“Everybody needs to chill out about the candidates, but gin up about the prospect of rallying behind,” a candidate.
“There will be differences” among the candidates, Mr. Obama said, but the ultimate goal “is to defeat a president and a party that has, I think, taken a sharp turn away from a lot of the core traditions and values and institutional commitments that built this country.”
AS OF THIS TIME MANY DEMOCRATS ARE COMPETING FOR YOUR VOTE WE WILL LIST THEM ALPHABETICALLY WITH PHOTOS, A BRIEF DESCRIPTION AND FURTHER CONTACT INFORMATION.
" We cannot be the first generation to leave less to our kids, not more. That’s why I’m running for President. Let’s build opportunity for every American and restore integrity to our government. ” —Michael Bennet (May 2019)
"We’re in a battle for the soul of America. It’s time to remember who we are. We’re Americans: tough, resilient, but always full of hope. It’s time to treat each other with dignity. Build a middle class that works for everybody. Fight back against the incredible abuses of power we’re seeing. It’s time to dig deep and remember that our best days still lie ahead. ” —Joe Biden (April 2019)
“ I’ve run for office three times and won each time, in no small part because I’ve never stuck my finger in the wind to decide what I should believe. It’s not who I am, nor do I think it’s what voters want in a leader. They want someone who levels with them, even when they disagree, and who is capable of offering practical, sensible, and ambitious ideas — and of solving problems and delivering results. ” —Michael Bloomberg (March 2019)
“ I'm running because the decisions we make in the next three or four years are going to decide how the next 30 or 40 go. And when I get to the current age of the current president in the year 2055 I want to be able to look back on these years and say my generation delivered climate solutions, racial equality and an end to endless war." ” —Pete Buttigieg (June 2019)
“ We can go down the road ... with bad policies like Medicare for all, free everything and impossible promises that will turn off independent voters and get Trump re-elected. That’s what happened with McGovern. That’s what happened with Mondale. That’s what happened with Dukakis. Or we can nominate someone with new ideas to create universal health care for every American with choice, someone who wants to unify our country and grow the economy and create jobs everywhere. And then we win the White House. ” —John Delaney (July 2019)
“ I will bring this soldier's principles to the White House, restoring the values of dignity, honor and respect to the presidency and above all else, love for our people and love for our country. ” —Tulsi Gabbard (February 2019)

“ We need someone that has people's back. We also need someone that can win. And I have won in these red districts. I win in the Midwest. I can win in states like Wisconsin and Michigan and Iowa. I also will do my job without fear or favor, just like I did as a prosecutor, and get through the gridlock like I've done as a senator, where I've passed over 100 bills where I've been the lead Democrat. ” —Amy Klobuchar (July 2019)
“ This race is not just about the character of any one individual, but about the character of the country. This is our chance to reclaim the American Dream. ” —Deval Patrick (November 2019)
“ America faces many crises right now––the environment, gun violence, opioids, even our Constitution. It's clear that business as usual isn't working. Our next president must be prepared to rebuild our democracy.” —Tom Steyer (June 2019)
“ Every person in America should be able to work hard, play by the same set of rules, & take care of themselves & the people they love. That’s what I’m fighting for, & that’s why I’m launching an exploratory committee for president. ” —Elizabeth Warren (December 2018)
“ I’m not a career politician—I’m an entrepreneur who understands the economy. It’s clear to me, and to many of the nation’s best job creators, that we need to make an unprecedented change, and we need to make it now. ” —Andrew Yang (February 2019)
