Is It Too Late To Jump In The Democratic Presidential Primary?Play
Two big names have been rethinking their decisions about 2020.
One is former Gov. Deval Patrick, who told WBUR last December that he and his wife had decided he would not run for president, calling the process "cruel."
Also considering a run is former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg.
So, we ask: Is it too late to get into this race? What would the path to victory look like? What do these late arrivals signal about the strength of an already-expansive field?
