Who Is Running For President in 2020?
Donald Trump has barely completed his second year in office, but presidential hopefuls from all parties are already lining up to run for office in 2020. While only a handful of political players have officially launched presidential campaigns, the signs that someone is running — serious fundraising, visiting battleground states, making political appearances, releasing a book, etc. — often make ambitions fairly clear well before they're announced.

While no Republicans have publicly waged a campaign to unseat the current president, several Democrats — and one Independent — have already officially announced their intention to run against him or launched serious "exploratory committees" to gear up for a run. Here's a look at the politicians who are running for commander in chief in 2020.
