US Democrats: Castro and Gabbard want to compete – politics

  • Democrats in the US are stepping up their search for candidates for the 2020 presidential election.
  • On the weekends, both former Minister Julián Castro from Texas and Congressman Tulsi Gabbard from Haiwaii have announced their candidacy.

A year before the start of the important primaries in the US, more Democrats have announced their candidacy. Congressman Tulsi Gabbard, who made headline news two years ago through a meeting with Syrian ruler Bashar al-Assad, told CNN television that she was speaking. On Saturday, the former Minister of Housing Julián Castro followed.

The party's primary polls, which are used by the Democrats to identify their candidate for the November 2020 election, will begin in February 2020 in the state of Iowa. It is likely that the field of applicants will be very large.

By the end of December, leftist Senator Elizabeth Warren had already laid the foundation for a possible candidacy. She founded a committee to explore their chances. In addition, former Vice President Joe Biden and independent Senator Bernie Sanders, who had failed in the 2016 pre-election campaign against Hillary Clinton, are considered potential candidates. Senators Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand and Amy Klobuchar as well as ex-congressman Beto O'Rourke are also said to have presidential aspirations.

Tulsi Gabbard, who sits in the House of Representatives for Hawaii, said she will formally announce her decision next week. As a central political concern called the 37-year-old access to health care, a reform of criminal law and climate issues. Gabbard, who rejects military intervention and is a veteran herself, met with Assad in January 2017 when she spent a week in Syria and Lebanon. For the meeting with the internationally outlawed president Gabbard was criticized by many.

Julián Castro, who was under Barack Obama Minister of Housing and Urban Development, announced his candidacy on Saturday during a gig in his hometown of San Antonio, Texas. The 44-year-old said it was time to create "new leadership and new energy". He announced that in the event of an electoral victory as the first official act to initiate the re-entry of the United States in the Paris Climate Agreement. Castro may be the only one of Latin American descent among the many possible Democratic candidates, thus retaining an important constituency.
