As more and more political figures begin to make statements and initiate moves toward the 2020 presidential race, one individual took a definitive step early this week. Two-term Washington Governor and ex-US Congressman Jay Inslee (D) formed a federal political action committee that could be the first step in his making a formal move into the presidential contest.
Of the 30 potential candidates who have at least acknowledged considering the race, six are Governors or former Governors. The sitting incumbents in addition to Gov. Inslee are Govs. John Hickenlooper (CO) and Steve Bullock (MT). The former state chief executives are Terry McAuliffe (VA), Martin O’Malley (MD), and Deval Patrick (MA).
