All true! But the Biden storyline has overshadowed another important development in the 2020 Democratic campaign: A top tier has emerged!
That lead pack has four candidates: Biden, California Sen. Kamala Harris, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. Biden remains the nominal frontrunner of the quartet, but Harris and Warren are chasing at his heels while Sanders appears to be clinging on to stay with the frontrunners.
The distance between those top four and the rest of the 200 — rough estimate! — other people running for the Democratic nomination, from an organizational and polling perspective, is real and significant.
