'They Need a New Personality': 'The Five' on Dems' Desire for a New Face in 2020
Harf: some see Beto O'Rourke as 'perfect' candidate.
Dana Perino, Lawrence Jones and the rest of the panel on The Five Thursday discussed the outlook of potential Democratic candidates in the 2020 election.
Front-runner Joe Biden is reportedly upset that Barack Obama is meeting with other 2020 challengers within his party, although Biden's spokesman called the rumor "unequivocally false."
Additionally, a new poll found that among Democratic and Independent voters, 59 percent of respondents would be "excited" for an "entirely new" candidate to run.
Seventy percent of those same voters, too, said that Hillary Clinton "shouldn't run" in the 2020 presidential election.
Tom Shillue said that the Democratic Party is "the cult of personality," which is why Democrats think Rep. Beto O'Rourke (Texas) could be a potential challenger to Donald Trump.
"That's why they need a new personality," Shillue said. "They're desperately in search of a personality."
Fox News analyst Marie Harf added that Democrats seem to be in search of a "savior."
"That's why they look at Beto, because they just want someone who's the perfect candidate and a perfect package," she said.
Morgan Ortagus said that there's a "generational struggle" within the Democratic Party as well, as younger voters appear to want more youthful leadership.
