DeBlasio is seen as a joke here in nyc. No way he wins the primary.

I was really hoping he wouldn't run.  I spent over an hour just getting the new tables to look somewhat decent last night and now a new candidate pops up to ruin it....and he possibly gets immediate debate qualifications?

Nice that you spent the time to accomodate the table to include Bullock. Now you can remake them, because Bill de Blasio announced his candidacy.

EDIT: And on another note... maybe this is my bias speaking, but does this opinion piece sound like a person thinking about candidacy staking out policy positions?

Yep.  I was dreading his announcement and here it is.  More work for upkeep and more lunacy in candidate land.  This is just too much.  I really cannot wait for the first debates which I hope immediately starts to thin the crowd.

Re: the editorial. That certainly sounds like she may be putting her name out there (with her primary platform position) to judge reaction and weigh the plausibility of her own candidacy.



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

Update: As previously noted, both the Governor of Montana, Steve Bullock, and the Mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio, have officially announced their candidacy this week for the Democratic Party.

This brings the total field to 24 major candidates. Of the 24, 19 officially qualify for the first debates later next month. Candidates have until the 12/13th of June to verify qualifications. Given that is still 4 weeks away, we will without doubt exceed the 20 candidate limitation forcing the DNC to enact their tiebreaker rules.

How many candidates have reached the threshold for the debates?

See bolded. Also the primary table in the first post shows qualified candidates with a light colored background.  A later table in my post shows who qualified and via which means.

Oh I must have missed that XD. 20 people on stage at once for a debate sounds like chaos.

Lol.  Keep reading my first post.  The first debate is split across 2 nights with up to 10 qualified candidates chosen at random for each night.

Okay I see. That makes things less chaotic. I hope some of the lesser known candidates can stand out. 



As I probably mentioned Tulsi, Yang, and possibly Bernie are my candidates right now. I'm really not interested in the other candidates as most seem to be either your typical establishment Neolib/mainstream Dems and/or are just too heavy on the Trump hysteria and/or identity politics bs, all traits that repel me with the Dem candidates.

Though Buttigieg seems like a decent guy from what little I've heard and seen of him. Thing is I just don't know a ton about him, and he doesn't seem to be on record with too many policies or ideals. I hear there's a chance he'll be appearing on Dave Rubin's show which would certainly raise his respect in my book even further and give me a chance to learn about him.

The link here is to the issues section of his campaign website.

And this link is to a chart based breakdown of all the major political positions for each candidate including Buttigieg.
