Apparently, the Los Angeles mayor thinks he has what it takes to be the Democratic champion.
I wonder how many people in America even know the name of the Los Angeles mayor. But Eric Garcetti doesn’t think such considerations should keep him from searching for more name recognition in Iowa. The fact there’s no obvious candidate who should get the Democratic nomination means that people who don’t have a chance of winning feel that they have a worthwhile opportunity.
The Hill reports, “Los Angeles mayor headed to Iowa.”
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D) will stoke speculation that he is considering running for president in 2020 when he makes several stops across Iowa next month.
Garcetti will travel to the Quad Cities in April to deliver a keynote address at the Scott County Democrats’ annual Red, White and Blue Dinner, his political spokesman said.
Later, he will make stops in Altoona, at a Carpenters Union training facility, and Des Moines, where he will take a tour with Mayor Frank Cownie.
