Democratic Governors Are Having Anxiety About 2020. Gavin Newsom Explains Why.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) told the hosts of "The View" that Democratic governors across the nation have "deep anxiety" about various members of the 2020 Democratic field.


"I like our chances in November as long as we unify," a smiling Newsom told the four ladies surrounding him. "Look, I was just at the National Governors Association [winter meeting] and this is not comfortable for me to say, but talking to all of the governors the last 48 hours, there's deep anxiety that we're not publicly communicating around what is potentially emerging as a Bernie Sanders ascendancy with the Elizabeth Warren wing of the party – and the prospects you were mentioning last segment – that [Michael] Bloomberg moves into that and we're at a place of civil war."

"It's not my point of view per say but it is the anxiety that, I think, is spoken, very much universally spoken, but not publicly yet," Newsom explained. "So we'll see what happens."

Co-host Ana Navarro asked the California governor what his anxiety is. "Because I'll tell you what my anxiety is, that Trump gets another four years." 

"That's everybody's," Joy Behar replied, waving her hand and taking a sip from her coffee cup.


"So, the good news is the Democratic Party is united with that principle in mind and in that frame," Newsom said, referencing the party's dedication to beating President Trump come November. "That's where I'm ultimately confident but there is some legitimate anxiety as this thing drags on."

Newsom pointed out that Californians are already voting, with their scheduled primary taking place on Super Tuesday. 

"You got 14 contests on Super Tuesday. It's about a third of all the delegates," he reminded the women on the panel. "That will ultimately be determinative. Right now it's about momentum, it's about energy, it's about mindshare."
