Is there a peanut farmer from Plains in the field of 2020 Dems?

Monday 08:59 GMT

The signs are everywhere that the 2020 Democratic presidential field will be much larger than usual — maybe larger than ever.

Right now, it's the usual suspects — Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and the rest — who get most of the attention, but is there another man (or woman) from a place like Plains who might capture the moment and catch fire? In the same way Carter made a socially acceptable outsider's pitch to the Wallace crowd, perhaps there's a Democrat from Trump Country who could do the same with the voters Hillary Clinton dismissed as "deplorables."
