    Time running short for new 2020 Democrats to jump in as filing deadlines approach

    For those wondering when the filing deadline for Democrats to run for President is....

    Interesting article from late October, 2019. Most of the deadlines have already passed.

    January 19, 2020 looks like the last day to file in some states.

    BUT...that doesn't really matter.

    Democrats can nominate whoever they want regardless of who wins the primaries and caucuses.

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/n...lines-approach

    Back in 1968, Hubert Humphrey didn’t run in a single Democratic presidential primary, but he still got the nomination,” Winger told the Washington Examiner. “If the convention is deadlocked on the first ballot and even the second ballot, anyone can get nominated whether they run in the primaries or not. I mean, the real purpose of primaries is to choose delegates to the national convention, and the party can do what it wants once it’s in a convention, especially when they’re deadlocked.”


    That's interesting.

    That means the DNC can select anyone they want.

    Gee, I wonder who that will be?

    More right wing media nonsense. There aren't any more democrats entering. Nobody legitimate. This is a false narrative to make it look like all of the current people in the running are trash and a savior is needed.

    Any one of the people running now would be an improvement from what we have right now. Never forget that.

    So you think one of the current people running will get the nomination?

    I'll bet you a whole dollar that no candidate running today will be the DNC nominee.

    Jesus. This has got to be one of the most dishonest bull**** memes I have seen from this particular right wing rag.

    There was a reason why HH got the nomination in 1968, even after not running in any primaries. Do I really have to spell it out here.

    To liken 1968 to any possible Democratic Primary result in 2020 is obscenely dishonesty, ridiculous and quite disturbing.

    Why in the world should I care??? He's not going anywhere....nobody wants him to run. My advice would have been to not get in the race in the first place. He looks like a fool.

    Crystal clear thanks, he was at one time a favorite of Pres.Obama and he may have suggested that it's in fact too late.

    Yeah...I read that too. We'll never now what advice President Obama age him. If it was to run, he did not serve him well.

    I’m still thinking it’s Hillary vs Trump 2.0.

    Either way, you just have to laugh at where we are as a country.

    Michelle Obama

    Gee, it would be such a pity if somebody with her grace, intelligence, humor, and dignity occupied the White House...
