Garrison discusses how the 2020 Democratic candidates are trying to differentiate themselves

By Jacqueline Isaacs

The field of candidates for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination is a crowded one, and each is doing their best to grab headlines. Bishop Garrison, co-founder and president of the Rainey Center, discussed many of them, including Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and former vice president Joe Biden on MSNBC.

Garrison said, “As we see across the board, the Democratic candidates are showing the nation and the world that they are strong leaders.”

When asked about Senator Warren’s recent visit to West Virginia, a solidly red state, Garrison said that Warren has offered ideas “that people care to hear about.”

The conversation concluded on the subject of Stacey Abrams, former Democrat gubernatorial candidate, stating that she has an interest in being the President of the United States. Garrison  reiterated that just as the voters watching the 2020 elections want new voices, “she’s a professional who is hungry for new leadership.”
