In the wake of New Hampshire, we’ve lost three Democratic candidates.
Do you know Michael Bennet was still running for president? What about Deval Patrick? They’re both out of the race now.
Patrick entered the race too late to make a difference. Maybe if he had run in 2016, he would have had a better chance but, by the time this year rolled around, most people didn’t remember who he was.
Michael Bennet was the type of candidate who, in the past, would have been treated like a serious contender but who, in 2020, was just too conventional to make much of an impression. Bennet tried to make his ability to win in a swing state a part of his appeal but is Colorado really a swing state at this point?
Andrew Yang has also dropped out and I’m going to miss him. He was the last likable candidate in the race but, in retrospect, he was always more of an online phenomenon than a real world contender. Hopefully, he’ll run for office in New York. Since New York is going to keep electing Democrats anyway, it would be nice to see them elect one who isn’t a jerk.
