Pence and Santorum, among others, spoke at the Values Voters Summit this weekend:

I know for a fact that Santorum wants to be president badly and that he was hoping to get nominated at a contested convention this year.

Well yeah, that's probably why he ran twice.

If Democrats choose to clear the field for Cuomo, they deserve 4 more years of Trump.

That's a classic nondenial denial line. She's definitely going to consider it, but seems like someone that may defer to other candidates should certain ones get in.

Hmm, I don't see her running for President in 2020 if she's just starting a first term as Governor.

Lol sure. Also, it's not fair at all to say Clinton is the one raising doubts about the election's legitimacy.

If anyone thinks that that Franken statement is definitive, just remember:

"I can unequivocally say I will not be running for national office in four years"

Audio of Biden:

It sounds half joking, half serious to me.

^Malloy was also speaking to a bunch of state delegations at the DNC this year. I was at North Carolina's delegate breakfast one morning, and when he walked in he sat right next to me. We got to talk for a bit.

#Malloy2020
I'm surprised because he seems like a major dick. Lindsey Graham was a real dick when I met him.

He's really nice in person. I've met him a few times.

Kanye's latest tweets now imply that he will run in 2024, not 2020.

Tim Egan from NYT casts Montana's Steve Bullock as a good dark horse candidate against Trump.

Just wait until after the Democratic primary for NH Gov in 2018. Suddenly it will seem like the most important governorship in the country.

Stefany Shaheen or Ann Kuster for president?

Nah as in all the potential Dem candidates will be stopping by. Though, Shaheen does have certain...qualities...that would make her more likely to win nationwide than someone like Kuster.

With $49.3 Billion and direct control of one of the largest social media platforms, he'd certainly have some advantages. Maybe he would run as an Independent, since he's apparently donated money to Booker, Schumer, and Pelosi, but also Boehner, Ryan, Rubio, and Hatch. He certainly has the money necessary to self-fund an Indy run.

Malloy isn't going to run for anything anytime soon. If he runs for Governor again, which I really doubt he will, he would probably face a primary challenge. If he survived that, he'd probably hand the state to a Republican.

At this point, it's pretty obvious Cory Booker is going to run for President in 2020.

How so? Every Senator's trying to get on the Sunday morning circuit; by that standard, Chris Murphy will also be running

Booker has made other moves indicating it as well, and has been openly coy about a run in a very candidate-like manner, while Murphy's people have been dismissive on an occasion.
