With the first Democratic primary debates a little over a month away, the 2020 presidential election cycle is officially upon us.
In reality, this election season started long ago. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren became the first Democrat to launch an exploratory committee on New Years Eve and America was off to the races. (RELATED: 2020 Democratic Presidential Candidates React To Mueller Report)
Since Warren’s announcement, more than 20 Democrats have launched bids of their own for the White House, with most of them being long-shots. The Democratic candidates will soon come together in one of the country’s biggest swing states.
The first primary debates will take place on June 26 and 27 in Miami, Florida. However, not every candidate will qualify for the debate. Each candidate needs 65,000 unique donors and at least 1% of the vote in early primary polling.
So far, seven candidates have qualified for the stage: former Vice President Joe Biden; South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg; California Sen. Kamala Harris; former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke; Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders; Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren; and businessman Andrew Yang.
But which one poses the biggest threat to President Donald Trump?
