UPDATED: March 13, 2019

After a week when the Democratic field got smaller, it’s opened up a bit more again. Former Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams of Georgia, who in the past had openly talked about a potential 2028 POTUS bid, has now moved up her timetable, telling PBS NewsHour’s Yamiche Alcindor that “2020 is on the table.”

“In the spreadsheet with all the jobs I wanted to do, 2028 would be the earliest I would be ready to stand for president because I would have done the work I thought necessary to be effective in that job,” Abrams said.

“She is taking a look at all options on the table in 2020 and beyond,” tweeted Lauren Groh-Wargo, who ran Abrams 2018 campaign.

Meanwhile, as Biden and Beto rumors abound, another solidly socialist Democrat is visiting New Hampshire this weekend. NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio is bringing his big-city progressivism to Manchester and Claremont.
