U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton is the fourth Democrat to step down from the crowded 2020 presidential race, with more sure to come before the first caucus or primary hits.
Others who have jumped already include Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell of California.
Hickenlooper said he’s running for Senate, while Inslee, Swalwell and Moulton are all running for re-election.
But who’s next?
The front-runners, going by the early polls, are former Vice President Joe Biden, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Massachusetts U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
Biden, who is 76, Sanders, who is 77, and Warren, 70, are vying to face off against President Trump, who is 73.
Cory Booker, 50, Pete Buttigieg, 37, Beto O’Rourke, 46, Tulsi Gabbard, 38, Kirsten Gillibrand, 52, and Kamala Harris, 54, are all trying to break into the lead pack.
And New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, 58, may not qualify for next month’s Democratic debate in Houston and is seen as the next to follow Moulton back to his current post.
