On this week's episode:

The Democractic Field

The Ohio Secretary of State’s Office has certified the candidates who will be on the March 17 ballot. In the presidential race, all the "major" candidates are included, but Andrew Yang and John Delaney both had trouble with directions and were disqualified.

Joe Biden is leading many polls with Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Pete Buttigieg trailing behind him. Michael Bloomberg is late to the race but is making agressive moves, hiring staff and opening offices in Ohio.
