Social media is abuzz encouraging our U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley to consider running for President in 2020. It may seem early, but to really be off and running when the time comes, candidates are getting prepared. And now is the time for Democrats to consider their options.

Merkley would bring his progressive ideas and his unquestioned integrity to a splintered party and could help heal the party. The only senator to support Bernie Sanders in 2016, following the primary he became an ardent advocate tor Hillary Clinton in the general election. He’s the right man at the right time to bring both the party and our country together. Get out there and support Jeff Merkley.

Run, Jeff, run!
