Axios has found that the “handful” of Senate Democrats who happen to be opposing President Trump’s nominations at every turn bear a striking resemblance to much of the (rumored) 2020 Dem presidential field.
A handful of Senate Democrats are committed to opposing President Trump’s executive branch nominations at every turn — and the group bears an uncanny resemblance to the rumored 2020 frontrunners. https://t.co/azFlCl2SEv

Well, what do you know?

As for which senators oppose the most, Axios finds that Kirsten Gillibrand (New York) has opposed 94.6 percent of Trump’s nominees, which is the highest opposition; Elizabeth Warren (Massachusetts) is next, opposing 91.9 percent of Trump nominees; then you have Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker and Kamala Harris to round out the top five.
So, as is the premise of the Axios piece, we can probably assume that the leading candidates for 2020 are among those names.

But seriously, do we HAVE to go through another presidential election in two years? Wasn’t the last one enough to last us for 20 years or so?
