Another Democrat announced his participation in the presidential elections in 2020.
Retired Navy Admiral, former Pennsylvania Congressman Joe Sestak reported joining the fight for the White House on his website.
Introducing himself to the voters, he said: “I wore a military uniform for more than 31 years, in peace and wartime – from the era of Vietnam and the Cold War to Iran and the rise of China.”
He said he was postponing his candidacy to take care of his daughter, who was diagnosed with brain cancer.
Sestak was part of President Bill Clinton’s national security team. A holder of a doctorate in public administration from Harvard, he twice ran for the US Senate, but to no avail.
He shared many positions popular among liberals, including on the right to abortion and arms control, and supported the agreement on Iran’s nuclear program.
Sestak is the 24th Democrat officially announce his intention to challenge President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. At the moment, the leaders of the polls are Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren.
