Updated 5 - 14 - 19 Let's not waste any time, it's only 454 days until the Iowa Caucus Here's every name I have found so far that's been mentioned as a potential contender for the Democrats. Not REMOTELY all of these will run, some of them are nonsense but the field will surely be large. The following are broken town by the category they most readily fit into. I will refrain from comment except where it's necessary to explain something - I'll save my opinion about odds for later, but within each set they are in rough order of whom I think has the most buzz or best path Senators (current or ex) Elizabeth Warren - In. Bernie Sanders - In. Corey Booker - In. Kamala Harris - In. Kirsten Gillibrand - In. And Out. Amy Klobuchar - In. Michael Bennet - In. Governors (current or ex) Steve Bullock - In Jay Inslee - In. And Out. John Hickenlooper - In. And Out. House (or ex) Beto O'Rourke - In Tulsi Gabbard - In Eric Swalewell - In. And Out. John Delaney - In Seth Moulton - In. And Out. Tim Ryan - In. Other office holders (or ex) Julian Castro - In. Peter Buttigieg - In. Bill de Blasio - reportedly about to announce Wayne Messum - In. well known for some other reason (wealth, celebrity, etc) Marianne Williamson - In. Andrew Yang - In. Old horses that ought to stay home Joe Biden - In. ------------------------------------------------ Latest update - removed Schultz, added note re Bullock. Field seems likely to be 22, or 23 if De Blasio indulges his ego.
