Democrats Reportedly Hoping for Late Entrant into 2020 Race Amid Biden’s Bombing

Amid the desperation, the Democrats are barely hiding the fact that they are praying for a miracle candidate to emerge.

Joe Biden, once considered the all-out frontrunner for 2020, has failed to hold the hope of the Democratic Party with still more than a year to go before America heads to the polls.

The former Vice President was touted as the only candidate with an appeal broad enough to snatch centrist midwesterners’ votes away from Donald Trump, which hypocritically set the Democrats up to root for another old, white guy to be President.

Then, as the Biden family’s business dealings in the Ukraine came under increased scrutiny in the wake of “UkraineGate”, Joe unceremoniously slipped into the number two spot behind Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, whose long-standing public feud with Donald Trump has provided the President plenty of ammunition to use against her come 2020.

“Since the last debate, just anecdotally, I’ve had five or six people ask me: ‘Is there anybody else?’” said Leah Daughtry, a longtime Democrat who has run two of the party’s recent conventions.

“There’s more anxiety than ever,” said Connie Schultz, a journalist who is married to Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio, another Democrat who some in the party would like to see join the race. “We’re both getting the calls. I’ve been surprised by some who’ve called me.”

“I can see it, I can feel it, I can hear it,” Mitch Landrieu, the former New Orleans mayor, said of the unease within the party. He said he thinks Mr. Biden is best positioned to defeat Mr. Trump but called the former vice president’s fund-raising “a real concern.”

Exacerbating the issue are the shoddy fundraising totals being raked in by Biden and his competitors, which pale in comparison to the enormous hauls being touted by both President Trump and the RNC.
