What The Most Important Voters In The Democratic Base Think Of The 2020 Candidates (HBO)

This week marks the official start of the 2020 cycle. After months of chatter about it, Joe Biden finally announced his run for president. That means the field is, for the most part, set.

And it means that Houston was the only place to be.

On Wednesday, activists and organizers gathered on the campus of Texas Southern University for the first-ever She The People candidates forum — an event aimed specifically at addressing the concerns of women of color.

These women, especially black women, are the most reliable Democratic voters. To win the nomination, you have to win them over. But ironically they feel like their voice isn’t really heard in politics. She The People was meant to change that.

VICE News traveled there to find out what the real Democratic Party base thinks of the dull Democratic Party presidential field.
