Why This Congressman Is Already Campaigning For President

The 2018 midterm elections haven't even happened yet. But that's not stopping Rep. John Delaney from openly campaigning for the 2020 presidential election.

Delaney launched his campaign in July 2017, more than three years before voting day. Now, he's running his first TV ads.

His first ad aired on Super Bowl Sunday in Iowa, an early-caucus state. As for why he's jumping the gun: Delaney told CNN Tuesday he isn't a fan of the people currently in office.

"I think what's going on the White House is awful," Delaney told CNN. "The president's degrading our society, degrading our culture, degrading our standing in the world, and we have to start early in terms of thinking about what the next chapter is."
