And then there was one more. And maybe one more still to come?
The large crop of Democrats who want to be president grew, technically, when New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand changed her status Sunday from exploring a 2020 White House run to becoming a full-fledged candidate. She’d spent more than a month visiting states to gauge support for a campaign, so voters likely considered her already in the race.
Not yet in, but perhaps tantalizingly close is former Vice President Joe Biden, who told Delaware Democrats in a speech Saturday night that he has “the most progressive record of anybody running.” He quickly corrected himself, clarifying that he meant to say “anybody who would run,” then added, “I didn’t mean it” while a cheering crowd in his home state nearly drowned him out.
