    The commision oversees the debates between the final candidates, has nothing to do with the R & D primary debates.......


    -- The Commission on Presidential Debates is now accepting applications from sites interested in hosting a 2020 presidential or vice presidential debate. The requirements include: "A debate hall of at least 15,000 square feet that is air conditioned. ... Nearby hotels that can provide 3,000 rooms for the event." The deadline is April 2. CPD will announce the general election debate sites this fall. More info


    -- Democratic presidential candidate REP. JOHN DELANEY (MD.) is paying for 14 Georgetown law students and two faculty members to go to a detention center in Dilley, Texas. The students and professors will spend a week helping provide legal aid to asylum seekers, according to a Delaney spokesman. Student groups will also go in May and December. Delaney is also scheduled to tour the facility and meet with families tomorrow. John and April Delaney donated $40,000 to the Georgetown Human Rights Institute for the effort. Delaney is a Georgetown Law alum.



    After two months of behind-the-scenes jockeying since the midterms, Democrats' race for president is about to burst into the open with a series of candidacy announcements and staff hires, 2020 operatives tell me.

    • "This has been a slow dance," one top strategist said. "No one was in a rush — people said they would make a decision over the holidays. Now, the pace is about to change fast."

    A wave of announcements, like the one Sen. Elizabeth Warren made on New Year's Eve morning, is planned for the next few weeks.



    • The hopefuls need to raise money, and need an organization for housing the aides they want to hire to take them off the hot 2020 job market.
    • Look for announcements this month by Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey, Sen. Kamala Harris of California, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and likely others.
    • "They need a vehicle," the strategist said. That could include an exploratory committee or a full candidacy.

    I'm told that "the Bs" — Biden, Bernie, Beto and the billionaires, including Mike Bloomberg — can wait longer because they'll be able to quickly raise money.



    • Be smart: A veteran of Democratic presidential campaigns said top aides will start to jump to campaigns this month. But many of the "big-time consultants, many of whom have multiple possible 2020 clients," will take longer.

    P.S. ... Former Vice President Biden has created a "campaign in waiting" while earning substantial wealth for the first time, "building a network of nonprofits and academic centers that are staffed by his closest strategists and advisers," the N.Y. Times' Kevin Sack and Alex Burns report.



    • Golden nugget: A contract for a Biden speech at the University of Utah specified that there "would be no insertion of the word 'former' before 'vice president' in social media promotions."

    So, Nancy Palooza and Pocahontas is the best DNC can do? The Donie will be laughing all the way to his second term. And meanwhile the phookin' Commies takin' over the Dark Side of the Moon... Oh well, a happy new year everyone.

    2020 WATCH -- DAVID SIDERS: "'Not a whole lot of red lights': Beto O'Rourke leaning toward 2020 run": "Beto O'Rourke is leaning toward running for president, according to four people who have spoken with him or his advisers in recent days. But for a presidential contender, his radio silence is becoming increasingly awkward.


    "In Iowa and New Hampshire — where Democrats are accustomed to being courted aggressively by presidential contenders — calls from Democratic Party organizers to O'Rourke's advisers go unreturned. And a report in the Wall Street Journal on Monday that O'Rourke won't make any decision before February and is preparing for a solo road trip — but avoiding early nominating states — bewildered even his supporters." POLITICO


    -- CHRIS CADELAGO: "Harris closes state campaign arm ahead of possible presidential run": "Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), moving closer to an anticipated presidential announcement, has shuttered her state campaign committee and is donating its roughly $1 million balance to a host of organizations, POLITICO has learned.


    "The decision to close down the nascent 'Harris for Governor 2026' committee — which essentially served as an account to park money she raised while serving as the state attorney general, before she was elected senator in 2016 — represents the latest sign that she's gearing up for a White House run."

    This graphic omits Howard Schultz, founder of Starbucks who is toying with the idea of a run as an independent. The D's are very unhappy about that fearing that it will split the Trump oppo, just as Ralph Nader did in Florida in 2000 allowing Dubaya to squeak in.

    The state of 2020
    Sen. Cory Booker is in, he announced today. (See the video.)
    Here's our updated graphic tracking the field:
