Criticisms of the Women Running For President in 2020 Are Fair — but at What Cost?
You don't have to be a political scientist to see there's something unique about the field of 2020 Democratic presidential candidates: three major candidates — and arguably the most viable and influential people who have announced campaigns so far — are women.
The first US senators to announce their presidential bids are Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Kamala Harris — all Democratic women. (Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has also announced a run, but her past opposition to gay rights has disqualified her among most Democratic voters. Recent reports say the Gabbard campaign is already in peril.)
