The first Democratic presidential candidate to drop out of the 2020 race for the White Houseis expected to make their name known Monday.

New York magazine says “John Hickenlooper looks like the best bet for an early exit,” but others disagree he will be the first out.

There is “speculation,” according to The Hill, that U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell of California will be the first to leave the race.

Swalwell, a regular presence on cable news shows, especially MSNBC’s, has not been able to distinguish himself enough to get his poll numbers up. His numbers are generally in the low single digits.

Exiting the race now will give the California Congressman time to focus on his re-election campaign, although he has said he doesn’t “have to make that decision until December.”

Swalwell has a press conference slated for 4 PM Monday.

"Might I recommend Bernie Sanders: the climate candidate," responds Vermont senator's press secretary.

If you want a candidate committed to banning fracking in the United States immediately, find another candidate than Joe Biden.

That's the advice of Biden himself, given to an activist from the Sunrise Movement in a video posted online Thursday after the two discussed the former vice president's adviser Heather Zichal and Biden's plans for the future of fracking.
