With the mid-terms done, the race for 2020 election starts now.
A US Presidential Election is truly like no other, effectively lasting two years. Although the primaries do not start until February 2020, would-be candidates are already visiting the opening states – Iowa and New Hampshire.
History shows that, to become the nominee for either party, victory in one of those two openers is essential. hence the need to campaign and build name recognition now. Particularly Democrat Nominee candidates who must make their voice heard in a very crowded field.
