Representative Seth Moulton, a Democrat from MA and 2020 presidential candidate, speaks during a campaign stop in Manchester, New Hampshire, U.S., on Tuesday, April 23, 2019.
Despite barely registering in national polls and with limited cash that excluded him from the Democratic debates, Moulton said he's proud of what his team accomplished since his entrance into the race 16 weeks ago. "I will once again be running for Congress in the 6th District of MA, my home, and I can't wait to get back at it".
In order to qualify for the Democratic primary debate stage, presidential candidates must raise campaign donations from no less than 130,000 individual donors and receive at least 2% of the vote in 4 or more polls that have been pre-approved by the DNC.
Biden represents the more centrist faction of the Democratic Party, while Warren, of MA, and Sanders, of Vermont, back more liberal policies.
Chris Jansing spoke with Moulton about the news while the Dow was down roughly 573 points and asked for his reaction. "These rules have created exactly the wrong outcomes, and they will not help us beat [President] Donald Trump".
But by waiting until April 22, Moulton joined a field that already had 18 candidates and was the most crowded primary in the party's modern history. Cory Booker (N.J.), South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen.
"I think it's evident that this is now a three-way race between (former Vice President Joe) Biden, (U.S. Senator Elizabeth) Warren and (U.S. Senator Bernie) Sanders, and really it's a debate about how far left the party should go", Moulton told the New York Times in an interview ahead of his announcement. Bernard Sanders of Vermont, Sen.
