NEW YORK | Democrats speeding up their 2020 campaign launches
NEW YORK — Democrats are hitting fast forward.
The first major presidential campaign announcements could come before year’s end. The Democratic National Committee plans to announce a debate framework by then featuring 15 to 20 candidates. The first primary debate could happen as early as May, a full three months before the premiere debate of the 2016 cycle.
And long-rumored White House hopefuls are already bowing out.
Like it or not, the 2020 presidential season has arrived.
