In July 2017, he became the first Democrat to announce that he was running for president in 2020, doing so in a Washington Post op-ed. But despite campaigning heavily in the early voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire, Delaney failed to pick up considerable support, and missed the cut off for the several of the recent Democratic debates.
