That’s not all, but those are the big names as of this point.

However, any of those people who decide to make a run against Trump in 2020 will have to go through a man with a net worth of $50 billion.

From Newsmax:

Former New York City mayor and business news billionaire Michael Bloomberg is preparing to make a White House run as a Democrat in 2020, The Times of London reported Thursday.

The 76-year-old Bloomberg, who has a personal fortune of more than $50 billion, according to The Times, has previously considered running as an independent, but decided against it in 2012 out of fears it would split the Democratic vote.

More from New York Post:

Bloomberg, who considered independent runs for the White House in 2008, 2012 and 2016, will challenge President Trump, the paper reported, citing sources.

“Mike Bloomberg told me he is going to run in 2020,” a source told the paper.

“He has the money to see it through while other candidates knock themselves out.”

Michael is the 11th richest man in the world.

Bloomberg ran for mayor of New York City as a Republican and won in a calculated political move. He later switched to Independent.

On Harris and Booker 2020, via National Review:

[…] With three possible candidates for the presidency among the Democrats on the committee, the confirmation hearings were not so much a test of the minority’s inability to thwart the nomination as a competition that might be best described as among the first cattle calls for 2020 hopefuls. Senators Amy Klobuchar, Cory Booker, and Kamala Harris all got a leg up in the race just because of their presence on the committee, and each performed according to his or her reputation. But while their speeches and questions didn’t do them any harm, there was no doubt that Harris emerged as the winner of the Democrats’ Kavanaugh primary.

Although Senator Mazie Hirono matched her for sheer hostility, with a prosecutorial style that seemed more in place at a Stalinist show trial than at a confirmation hearing, among the 2020 contenders Harris was the toughest questioner of the trio. And by deliberately insinuating that Kavanaugh was somehow connected to the Trump administration’s efforts to defend itself against the Russia-collusion probe led by Robert Mueller, Harris not only gained the kind of publicity that is fundraising gold for a potential candidate, she also made it clear that she would stop at nothing in her efforts to smear opponents. If Democrats are looking for someone who is willing to be ruthless enough to take on President Trump even if that means engaging in gutter politics — and that seems to be exactly what their base is longing for — then Harris’s approach may give her the boost she needs to fuel interest in her presidential prospects.

Klobuchar’s interest in the presidency is well known, but if she has gotten the least buzz among the many Democratic senators thinking about 2020, the reason for that was seen in the hearings. Her approach to questioning was entirely conventional. Though her barbs aimed at Kavanaugh and attempts to get him to declare his opposition to liberal legal sacred cows was intended to spark controversy, she didn’t succeed. In a forum in which demonstrating hostility to the nominee and all things conservative and Trump was the objective, Klobuchar was just too “Minnesota nice” to make much of an impact.

2020 is right around the corner, folks.
