On this week’s episode of Party Politics, co-hosts Jeronimo Cortina and Brandon Rottinghaus take a break from the drama surrounding the impeachment inquiry to focus on the latest updates in campaign fundraising for the 2020 Presidential race. With the Presidential Primaries less than five months away, the pressure is on for the lower-tiered Democratic candidates as they continue to compete for a share of the fundraising and polling requirements they need to meet in order to participate in the next round of debates. Jeronimo and Brandon provide a status update on the very crowded 2020 Democratic field, and make their weekly predictions on the candidates who they believe will have a real shot at capturing the Democratic nomination in July, 2020.
