For the last two nights, Democrats have engaged in the first of many presidential debates. Out of a crowded field of 24, 20 made it to the stage, which spread over two nights of ten candidates each. Through all of the mayhem, candidates spoke out on issues from immigration to abortion to healthcare to foreign policy. However, they didn’t address everything, including some highly important topics. Here are seven of the most important issues that didn’t receive coverage in the Democratic debates.
Vermin Supreme is a political icon, author and 2020 libertarian candidate for President of the United States. Ever since 1987, Vermin has dedicated much of his life running for various local, state or national political offices.
Mr. Supreme is truly a grassroots candidate for the everyday American. Vermin, unlike many of his opponents, spends nearly all of his time traveling around the country to meet with his future constituents. Monetary support comes entirely from his dedicated supporters who have stood by Vermin for years.
The 2020 election is just over a year away, but there is already a long list of candidates running on the Democratic ballot. In June next year, the DNC will hold their primary debates in Milwaukee with over 20 candidates participating. Those who lean anti-establishment have had their eyes on Andrew Yang and Tulsi Gabbard, but it’s easy to forget that they are both polling below 2%. At the top are still Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, and at the very top with 27%, Joe Biden.
As the 2020 presidential election approaches, there is much talk about the boisterous and ever-growing democratic field. However, the 3rd largest American political party, the Libertarian Party, also has a primary ahead of them.
In 2016, former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson was able to garner small doses of media attention. However, the 2020 libertarian candidates seem rather unknown. Information on the candidates is limited, but outlets like Chris Spangle’s “We Are Libertarians Network” have done their best through their presidential candidate and debate series hosted by Hodey Johns.
Note that this is not a conclusive list of all candidates. Rather this is a short description of the most prominent figures who have announced their campaigns.
Maj is running under the guise of the Libertarian Party, but exaggerating his grassroots and solution-based style. Maj’s appearance as an outsider separates him from the “self-interested, politically corrupt posers” who he says currently run the city.
