ARI FLEISCHER: It’s been a long time since the Democrats reached down to the ranks of their governors for a candidate. You have to go back to 1996. Bill Clinton was the last governor who became the Democratic nominee. They liked senators in 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012, ’16, ‘20. They all nominated senators or former senators. But let me remind you, 在里面 2019, 2020 cycle, 28 Democrats ran for president in ’19 and ’20, four of them were governors or former governors.
So when Joe Biden announces he’s not running, which he will do after the midterm election and into early 2023, it will be a donnybrook, a free-for-all. Every Democrat will jump into the water: 州长, senators and dog catchers, one and all.
