Senate Democrats Running For President Don't Always Agree. Just Look At Their Vote Record.

Source: Huffington Post

Five senators have declared bids for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination: Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kamala Harris of California and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York. At least two more ― Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Bernie Sanders of Vermont, an independent ― are expected to join the fray.

Although theyíve often voted as a bloc on hot-button issues like Obamacare repeal and President Donald Trumpís tax cuts and Supreme Court appointments, these seven senators have disagreed on a range of other bills, and on Trumpís various executive and judicial nominations that have come before the Senate.

HuffPost examined the legislative record dating back to the start of the 115th Congress ― the beginning of Trumpís presidency ― in cases where at least one of the senatorsí positions has differed from the others. The results are striking: While the list shows differences on a number of minor motions and resolutions, it also includes substantial areas of disagreement on big issues like health care, foreign policy and immigration, all of which are likely to come up in the Democratic primary debates.
