The already sizable field of Democrat contenders for the party’s 2020 nomination just got a little larger:
JUST IN: John Hickenlooper tells @GMA he is running for president in 2020 because "I believe that not only can I beat Donald Trump, but that I am the person that can bring people together on the other side and actually get stuff done." https://t.co/McvWVlgrLT pic.twitter.com/8GfOQni0Gq

Because there are so many Dems in the race, Hickenlooper will have to do something to set himself apart from the large group — which perhaps is the reason for this approach:

But today, this Geologist, Brewer, Mayor, and Governor is submitting his application to be your next President. pic.twitter.com/mcA41NfLo6
