Iâm the candidate who can actually beat Trump.— Michael Bennet (@MichaelBennet) January 31, 2020
Iâve won two hard races in Colorado, a state a lot like New Hampshire â not much like Massachusetts or Vermont.
Iâm experienced enough to know how to get the job done, and Iâm the right generation to do it. pic.twitter.com/AiXCrnbEOJ
– The senator from Colorado hails from a state that was Republican but has increasingly become Democrat-supporting.
He was a member of the bipartisan “Gang of 8” – four Democrats and four Republicans — that introduced a major bill to reform immigration policy in 2013.
The true character of a person is revealed in the Oval Office. We saw it with President Obama. We're seeing it with President Trump â and what we've witnessed from this president over the last three years makes clear that we can't give him another four. pic.twitter.com/SEb3XztnKI— Joe Biden (Text Join to 30330) (@JoeBiden) January 30, 2020
– the 77-year-old, whose life has been marked by several personal tragedies, served as vice president to Barack Obama. His experience in foreign policy is unmatched, although his son Hunter’s business links to Ukraine sparked the events that led to Donald Trump’s impeachment inquiry.
Mr Biden defended Obamacare against rival candidates who want a more European-style healthcare system. His rapport with working class voters is seen as an asset in the bid to win back Trump voters and he has based his campaign in his native state Pennsylvania, a battleground.
I believe we can once again be a country that welcomes immigrants, values immigrants, respects immigrants, and empowers them to pursue the American Dream. https://t.co/q14X4YlFGP pic.twitter.com/mX08mXxpAh— Mike Bloomberg (@MikeBloomberg) January 31, 2020

Mr Bloomberg was mayor of New York City from 2002 to 2013. He originally ran as a Republican but left the party mid-way through his second mayoral term and won his third term as an independent. He rejoined the Democrats in 2018.

– The 38-year-old gay former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is a novice in terms of national politics but has proved a fundraising phenomenon.
The ex-serviceman is often introduced on stage by his husband Chasten and is the first openly LGBT candidate to make a serious pitch for the presidency. He studied as a Rhodes scholar in the UK at Pembroke College, Oxford.
As a soldier and member of Congress, my mission has always been to serve the interests of the American people. As president, I will stand strong in my mission to serve you, and will never bow to the foreign policy establishment and powerful elite. #StandWithTulsi pic.twitter.com/95k17FxXCC— Tulsi Gabbard 🌺 (@TulsiGabbard) January 28, 2020
– She has encountered criticism from fellow Democrats for some spirited debate performances including fierce opposition to some US foreign interventions.
The former servicewoman has sparred with Hillary Clinton, and has filed a defamation lawsuit against the former secretary of state over an interview where Mrs Clinton appeared to call Ms Gabbard “the favourite of the Russians”.
We have a President who thinks everything is about him. His tweets, his golf courses, his ego.— Amy Klobuchar (@amyklobuchar) January 28, 2020
But I think the job is about you. Your healthcare, schools, security, families and future.
Iâll be a President who restores decency to the White House and gets things done for you. pic.twitter.com/wfrRXoaUf6

– the 78-year-old put up a spirited campaign for the party’s backing in the last election but eventually finished runner-up to 2016 nominee Mrs Clinton, although tensions with the former first lady played into the hands of Donald Trump.
Mr Sanders is running on a platform with socialist policies including medicare for all and has enjoyed a poll surge in recent weeks.
His older brother Larry is a politician in the UK, having been a Green Party county councillor in Oxfordshire, and standing unsuccessfully as a Westminster candidate several times.

Ms Warren has also battled with Mr Sanders for the backing of what is seen as the party’s progressive wing and she accused him of calling her a liar when she claimed he told her a woman could not win the presidency.
The 70-year-old has spurned big donations.
She was nicknamed “Pocahontas” by Mr Trump following her claims of Native American ancestry.
