KANSAS —

The Democratic Party is in the process of a nominee that can go against President Trump.

20 presidential nominees took the stage last week to debate the most important issues in America. Topics like affordable healthcare, climate change, and the economy were discussed.

In Kansas, the State Party’s Director Ethan Corson says he believes democrats will pick a candidate that will address what is affecting real people. And he says the amount of people running is good for the process.

“We have a number of great candidates, when I looked at the stage, I saw a number of folks that I thought would be tremendous nominees, and tremendous presidents, I think it’s really encouraging that so many amazing folks have stepped and thrown their hat in the ring, and I think it’s great that we have folks offering a broad variety of ideas to address these really important issues.”
