(RightWing.org) – The 2020 DNC presidential race has been nothing short of a trainwreck. Thinning out the initial herd of over 20 candidates, witnessing the botched Iowa caucus, and now dealing with the coronavirus has taken its toll on everyone. Now, the two remaining front-runners, Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) are being judged on their reactions to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Biden, the current presumptive candidate with a roughly 300 delegate lead, has all but disappeared from the public eye since the virus became widespread. Conversely, Sanders hosted digital town halls and raised funds for coronavirus charities — but he’s not winning in the polls.
Now, another Democrat is taking over the media spotlight due to his response to America’s handling of the pandemic.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is the Democrat darling of the hour and supporters are calling for him to be “drafted” into the presidential race at the DNC convention.

Cuomo has been highly critical of President Trump’s response to the coronavirus, which has earned him plenty of media moments. Now, Cuomo’s sizable following might give him enough momentum to take Biden’s front-runner spot in a potential brokered DNC convention. Only time will tell if the New York governor eventually earns the nomination.
