20-20 Vision: Candidates Have Their Eye On The Prize

20-20 Vision: Candidates Have Their Eye On The Prize

Kaden Golden, Staff Writer

    The 2020 Presidential election is shaping up to be very entertaining. With 16 out of the 18 declared candidates being within the Democratic party, it will be interesting to see the results of this whole election process.

    Many of the Democratic supporters are looking to oust President Trump in the upcoming election. Fueled by their extreme dislike of the man since the 2016 election, Democrats have grown increasingly irritated at the President’s policies while in office. His stances on immigration, abortion, gun control, gender equality, and his relationships with foreign countries have all contributed to their growing discontent with the President.

    Noticeably absent from the 2020 race is Hillary Clinton. For the first time in recent memory, the Clinton name will not be appearing on any ballots in 2020, according to her most recent statements.

    On the Republican side it appears the party will be supporting Trump for a second term, with only one challenger in William Weld. Despite a rocky start, Trump seems to have done what he promised during the 2016 election and these action on his words seems to have energized the party. In contrast to the 2016 election, where there was a buffet of Republican candidate choices, 2020 might just be unifying year for the conservative party.

    Some of the more noticeable candidates for the Democratic party are Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker and Julian Castro.

    All in all, the 2020 election is anyone’s game, and it will should be the people’s choice next year.
