Michael Bennet (D), a U.S. senator from Colorado, announced that he was running for president on May 2, 2019. "I think it's fitting for us to end the campaign tonight," Bennet told a crowd in Concord.  Bennet withdrew from the race on February 11, 2020.

Pete Buttigieg (D), the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, announced that he was running for president on January 23, 2019. “After a year of going everywhere, meeting everyone, defying every expectation, seeking every vote, the truth is that the path has narrowed to a close for our candidacy, if not for our cause,” Buttigieg said.  Buttigieg withdrew from the race on March 1, 2020.

Michael Bloomberg (D), ex-NYC mayor, announced he was running for president on November 24, 2019. "I’m a believer in using data to inform decisions. After yesterday’s results, the delegate math has become virtually impossible – and a viable path to the nomination no longer exists. But I remain clear-eyed about my overriding objective: victory in November," Bloomberg said.  Bloomberg had a single victory in the Super Tuesday (3/3/2020) voting from the American Samoa caucuses.  Bloomberg endorsed Biden before leaving the race.  Bloomberg withdrew from the race on March 4, 2020.

Tulsi Gabbard (D), a U.S. representative from Hawaii, announced that she had decided to run for president on January 11, 2019. “Our nation is facing an unprecedented global crisis that highlights the inextricable bonds of humanity, and how foreign policy and domestic policy are inseparable,” she said. “The best way I can be of service at this time is to continue to work for the health and well-being of the people of Hawaii and our country in Congress, and to stand ready to serve in uniform should the Hawaii National Guard be activated.”  Gabbard withdrew from the race on March 19, 2020.

Bernie Sanders (I), a U.S. senator from Vermont, announced that he was running for president on February 19, 2019. "I cannot in good conscience continue to mount a campaign that cannot win and which would interfere with the important work required of all of us in this difficult hour,” he went on to say “While this campaign is coming to an end, our movement is not.”  Sanders withdrew from the race on April 8, 2020.

This really needs poll numbers and donation amounts so we can see how the candidates compare to each other in those terms.

Because that will tell you how able they are to compete.

One term congresscritter.

He is no conservative.

A libertarianish guy who likes to call himself conservative.

Typical Republican conservative that didn't and wouldn't conserve anything.

He is a radio gasbag with few redeeming qualities.

I have tried to listen to him a few times, but his slow, overly-deliberate enunciation always made me change the station.

I guess the Republican challengers are trying to make names for themselves. It's impossible for them to believe they're going to rescue Republicans from the old bigotry smear by constantly drawing attention to the alleged bigotry of the guy most Republicans support. I don't buy that they're stupid enough to think that would make any sense.

But no, we don't need to worry about keeping track of these gimmick challengers to Trump. Unlike the Democratic candidates, none of these guys has a chance of winning anything.

My impression of the D Candidates:

Biden : He's the crazy uncle you warn your kids about on your way to Thanksgiving Dinner at your parents.

Warren and Sanders:  The college profs who teach required classes and the only way to pass is to parrot back what they say.

Buttigieg: Is anyone checking ID's around here ??

Booker:  Change the words to She's got Bette Davis eyes to He's got Corey Booker eyes.  i'm waiting for his eyes to pop out of head.

RF O'Rouke:  He will never be elected to any office in Texas, but he has guaranteed Texas will remain R for the foreseeable future.

Harris:  Regarding my record as CA Attorney General.  "These are not the Droids you are looking for".

Yang: Watch me violate campaign laws on live TV.

Steyer:  I out do Yang by buying enough supporters to qualify for the 1st debate. But no one donates to me because I'm as rich as Trump.

Williamson:  I make all the others look sane.

Gabbard: I'm was a moderate, until Pelosi reminded me about who controls the re-election campaign funds.

Klobacar:  Walter Mondale v2.0.

The rest of the field:  Who?

Me too.

I think her problem ended up being that she was so used to everyone in CA fawning over her and her politics, she somehow thought she could skate through national elections with that same, "Kamala is our hero" user base.

Her campaign soon learned that CA, Twitter nitwits, and other small but vocal social media minorities don't make up the entire country, and you can't run on superficial platitudes. Plus she appears to be a moron.

And Julian Castro is now out.... but was he ever really in?

I'm hard pressed to think of a time when I heard his name in a context where he was actually considered to be, well, a candidate.

Maybe he just didn't offer enough free *expletive deleted*it?
