As the year 2020 progresses, so does the Democrat’s progress to challenge President Trump. In less than week’s time span, several major candidates including Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg, Mike Bloomberg, and Elizabeth Warren dropped out of the 2020 race.

The former candidates proceeded to support Biden, excluding Warren who has not endorsed either. There are currently 27 primaries that are 100% reported. Many of the recent Democratic rallies throughout the country have been halted due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Buttigieg won the first, Iowa, before dropping out entirely. Bernie Sanders won seven states early on, and Biden won the remaining 19 states, making Biden the likely candidate
to challenge President Donald Trump later this year.
