The ongoing impeachment trial has presented a challenge for 2020 hopefuls who are seeking to ramp-up campaign efforts before early voting begins next month. This week, senators are stuck in Washington sitting in as jurors in the impeachment trial for President Trump. This means Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar will miss out on crucial campaign days during a key stretch in their campaigns.
2020 Democrat hopeful Bernie Sanders recently admitted the impeachment trial is going to negatively affect his presidential campaign. While talking to reporters in Washington on Thursday, the Vermont senator said the trial may take several weeks, which he would rather spend campaigning in Iowa and New Hampshire to win the Democrat Party nomination.
