Potential 2020 contenders compete for staff in key states

It’s one of the clearest signals to date of who’s considering a run for the White House in 2020: staffing.

For months, would-be Democratic presidential hopefuls — Sens. Cory Booker (N.J.) and Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), to name a couple — have dispatched trusted aides and advisers across the country to help Democrats in the midterm elections.

At the same time, several potential candidates have started the process of recruiting new personnel in a handful of states that will be pivotal in securing their party’s nomination in 2020.
While most staffing decisions are still in their formative phases and few official moves have been made, several Democratic officials in early primary states said that would-be White House hopefuls and their advisers have been making calls to prospective campaign operatives, who could eventually help build their ground operations in the run-up to 2020.

Taken together, the moves are intended to help Democrats eyeing a challenge to President Trump gain an early presence in crucial early-voting states, including Iowa and New Hampshire, and build political networks that will come in handy in a potentially crowded primary field.
