Despite Low Poll Numbers Garcetti Considering 2020 WH Run

October 17, 2018 - 12:35 pm

(KNX 1070) - Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti isn’t allowing a poor showing in a recent poll to dampen his possible run for the White House. 

He hasn’t officially thrown his hat into the 2020 presidential ring yet but Garcetti says he wouldn’t look to polls to make his decision anyway.

A recent CNN poll had him with just two percent of Democratic voter support for possible candidates.

Former Vice President Joe Biden topped the list.

Garcetti also insists that his recent trips to South Carolina and Ohio are about flipping Congress in November during the midterm elections.

He says he won’t even start to seriously think about making a decision on a potential bid for the presidency until after the midterms.
