Did you watch the Democratic presidential candidates debate last night on CNN? If not, you have the opportunity to watch night #2 starting at 8pm ET live.
Some say it is way too early to be thinking about the 2020 election. The mantra among my friends is “one election cycle at a time.” However, it takes time to learn about all the candidates so we might as well start the process now. True, there are so many presidential candidates in the field, 24 at this moment. (Due to Democratic National Committee rules only 20 have met the requirements for debates #1 and #2.)
