The 2020 Presidential race received a shot in the arm this week when Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders announced his intention to run for President. Sanders is one of many Democratic candidates in an increasingly crowded field. More women are vying for the Oval Office, including Senators Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Kristen Gillibrand, and Massachusetts’ own Elizabeth Warren.
While many have thrown their hat in the ring, other prominent names—like former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick—have passed on running. To make sense of the where the race for President currently stands and what might develop in the future, Connecting Point’s Ray Hershel sat down with political consultant Anthony Cignoli and Western New England University Professor John Baick to dissect, discuss, and analyze the candidates and the issues at stake in 2020.
