Democratic presidential hopefuls are starting campaigning, and getting themselves introduced to voters in a few of the earliest states that will weigh in on their campaigns to take on President Donald Trump in the 2020 election.

For instance, in South Carolina and Iowa, the candidates are spreading out on Saturday, March 2nd, to spend time with potential voters.

Senators Cory Booker of New Jersey, and Sherrod Brown of Ohio, are in South Carolina, site of the South's first primary, while Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts plans to court the voters of Iowa.

Moreover, Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota will attend the Gridiron Club dinner in Washington, an event where politicians traditionally poke fun at the press and other politicians.

Meanwhile, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont is making Brooklyn the official launch site of his second run for the White House.

On the other hand, Trump is planning to address a gathering of conservatives in Maryland, where he is expected to emphasize the White House's political message, that Democrats are rallying behind what his team is calling the policies of "socialism."
