Another Democratic candidate has entered the presidential race in 2020. It’s former Representative Joe Sestak (D-Pa.)
He issued a statement on his campaign website in which he said:
“What Americans most want today is someone who is accountable to them, above self, above party, above any special interest … a President who has the depth of global experience to restore America’s leadership in the world to protect our American Dream at home … and one who is trusted to restructure policies where too many see only the growth of inequity not of the economy. I want to be that President who serves the American people the way they deserve to be served.’’
Sestak knows that he entered the race later than the other candidates but said that he did so to be there with his daughter as she battled brain cancer. His two main objectives will be to put a brake on climate change and putting an end to an illiberal world order’s injustices, from China’s control of the 5G network to Russian interference in Democratic elections, The Hill reports.
“Americans know that we have more in common than we do differences. I know. I served with all of you in the global canvas of our Navy and served all of you as a Congressman. And now, as President, I will need all of you to help answer the call for America’s leadership to restore a just world order so it serves us by raising our collective good, here at home – done by my gaining your trust that I will always remain accountable to you alone,’’ concluded Sestak.
