Democrats who are considering challenging President Donald Trump in 2020 are currently flocking to Iowa, according to The Hill

In the last year, Iowans have seen Senator Bernie Sander, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Representative Tim Ryan, Senator Amy Klobuchar, and Representative Seth Moulton, all who are among the Democrats who might be considering a possible bid to challenge Trump in 2020. Locals are also curious about the possibility of seeing Joe Biden, another figure expected to run for president. 

According to The Hill, other top-tier possible candidates are Senators Kamala Harris, Kristen Gillibrand, and Cory Booker. These possible candidates haven't yet been to Iowa, but their arrival is expected to happen soon. 

"The flurry of activity among presidential hopefuls shows the increasing importance of Iowa not just for caucus results but for making a name and building a brand on the national political stage," writes The Hill. 

In August, it was reported that Michael Moore suggested that the Democrats run a celebrity against Donald Trump in 2020.

Moore’s suggestion came in an interview with co-hosts of “The View,” where he remarked that Democrats should run Tom Hanks or Oprah Winfrey. Moore remarked that Democrats should run a “beloved American” celebrity in 2020, and believed that Tom Hanks and Oprah Winfrey both fit the bill. In June, Moore recommended that professional wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson might be a good candidate.

“Who wouldn’t vote for Tom Hanks for President of the United States? Come on. Oprah!”


"Shark Tank" host and celebrity businessman Mark Cuban has made a surprising comment about national politics and the 2020 election, according to the Daily Caller, and has hinted at the possibility of running for president. Cuban has been more vocal about his political views since the 2016 election, and even more so after the election of President Donald Trump in November. 

Reports also claim that Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, a possible frontrunner, seems to be prepping for a presidential run in 2020. Suspicion has emerged for a variety of reasons, most notably that she seems to be raising historic amounts of money and cozying up with top political connections within the Democratic Party, according to the Daily Caller.

In fact, the Daily Caller reports that the senator has amassed a mighty $13 million going into her re-election year, an amount that is far greater than any senator in modern history. It is certainly more than what she will need to win her re-election seat, especially this early in the year.
