Another significant 2020 presidential procedural move has already occurred even before the 2018 midterms are complete. New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) has signed legislation that changes the state’s election law to allow individuals to run concurrently for President and other offices. This means that first-term Sen. Cory Booker (D), who is ready to mount a presidential campaign, can simultaneously enter presidential primaries and run for re-election in 2020 should his national bid fail. Several states allow presidential candidates to run without risking their current offices for those who hold them.
