WaPo’s Capehart: ‘Whoever’ the 2020 Dem Nominee Is, That Person Will Beat Trump
CAPEHART: "Right. And right now, you know, that's the beauty of the primary process. There are people who might look good on paper right now, but once they get into the process, they might wither, they might fold, they might shrivel up. I have my eye on some people I don't know, because President Trump is such an unconventional President, unconventional campaigner, asymmetrical fighter. I'm not sure if we can even think of this campaign as a, like, what's the best way to beat him. I mean, I have written this before. I think Democrats, you need to, no matter who the nominee is, circle the wagons and support that nominee because as we saw in 2016, the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton got 3 million more votes than President Trump did, but he won the electoral college. If Democrats circle the wagons around the nominee, whoever that is, whether it's Beto, whether it's Elizabeth Warren, whether it's Kamala Harris, that person will win."
