Primary 2020: Who's Running, Who's Testing the Political Waters in N.H. & Elsewhere

Allegra Boverman for NHPR

For months now, speculation has been growing about who will run in the Democratic and Republican Presidential primaries, fueled by politicians' visits to such states as New Hampshire and Iowa. The list of potential Democratic contenders appears long and  includes Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey, Former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro, and Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachussetts.  Only a few Republicans who have made names for themselves as critics of President Trump appear on the list so far as possible opponents of Trump, including Ohio Governor John Kasich.  Join us for a preview of the 2020 primary contest.
