After an embarrassing loss in 2016 that saw President Donald Trump defeat Hillary Clinton, Democrats are taking a similar approach — fielding female candidates from Hawaii to New York.
As it stands, of the four candidates who have filed, three of them are women, with the other being former secretary of housing and urban development Julián Castro.
The three women who have officially filed are Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI-D), Sen. Kristen Gillibrand (NY-D), and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (MA-D).
Obviously, the field is slim, with the election a little less than two years away. But insiders believe more women will file — including Sen. Kamala Harris and Hillary Clinton.
Sen. Bernie Sanders, former vice president Joe Biden and others are expected to file in the coming weeks. With it being early, the field could easily be male-dominated by the time the primary rolls around. But as it stands, women are headlining the Democratic Party. Here's who's in so far.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard
Gabbard, 37, is an Iraqi war veteran who represents parts of Hawaii in the House of Representatives. She announced she was running on Friday. Gabbard is both the first American Samoan and Hindu member of Congress. Gabbard is a controversial candidate given her socially conservative past. She is a economic progressive who is pro-choice and supports same-sex marriage.
Sen. Kristen Gillibrand
Gillibrand, 52, represents New York in the U.S. Senate. The two-term senator has a reputation for going after Trump. She famously called for him to resign over sexual assault allegations. She also was a vocal opponent of Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation.
She made her announcement on Tuesday night.
Gillibrand has also been vocal about gun reform and advocates for the rights of women, the LGBTQ community and people of color.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren
Warren, 69, was the first to announce her presidential bid. The Massachusetts Senator is a former Harvard bankruptcy law professor. She drew headlines months back for for a DNA test she took to prove she has Native American heritage — the test showed that she may be 1/1024, far less than the average American.
