8 Women Who May Actually Run for President in 2020
After all that’s gone down since the 2016 election, and the history-making wave of women running in the 2018 midterm elections, there’s a lot of hype about a woman finally taking on the Oval Office. Of course, the media has been speculating over runs for Oprah and Michelle Obama, but it doesn’t look like either of them are going to go for it. And while some of us would love to see a run by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who’s been taking DC (and Instagram) by storm, she’ll be too young in 2020 to assume the position.
But there are some other big contenders for the job out there: Here are the badass women we’d love to see hitting the campaign trail soon.
<b>Kirsten Gillibrand:</b>supporter of sexual assault survivors and abolishing ICE, and when asked by Stephen Colbert recently if she’d run, she revealed that she’d consider it.
<b>Tulsi Gabbard: </b>news sources in Hawaii, but she hasn’t confirmed anything yet, just that she’s focusing on her state of Hawaii, where she is a voice for veterans and those currently serving in the US military.
