Al Franken-MN/Jeff Merkley-OR 2020.

Both of these men are strong progressives elected to the US Senate in 2008 by unseating Republican incumbents by a narrow margin, re-elected in 2014 by high single digit/ low double digit margin. Al Franken-MN is doing an excellent job as US Senator filibustering Trump cabinet appointees. He was also behind Air America. Jeff Merkley-OR was the first Democratic US Senator to endorse Bernie Sanders.

Could Chuck Schumer (D-NY) follow Bob Dole's (R-KS) lead and seek the 2020 Democratic Presidential

Nomination to unseat Donald Trump-R.
Bob Dole was the Republican leader of the US Senate from 1985-1996 (Reagan's 2nd Term to Clinton's 1st Term) when he decided to seek the 1996 Republican Presidential nomination to unseat Bill Clinton-D but was unsuccessful.
Chuck Schumer-NY has been Democratic of the US Senate since 2017. If Democrats don't find a decent candidate to unseat Trump-R by 2019, then Schumer should seek the 2020 Democratic Presidential Nomination. Unlike Dole-KS in 1996,Schumer-NY has an excellent chance of getting elected President because Schumer-NY is a much better campaigner than Dole,Gore,Kerry,and Hillary Clinton. Schumer-NY unseated Al D'Amato in his first US Senate Race-1998 and won re-election in 2004,2010,and 2016 with over 65 to 70 percent of the popular vote. Schumer could win back the Bernie supporters by leading the fight to block any of Trump's agenda from passing in the US Senate by a filibuster. Elizabeth Warren-MA could be the next Democratic Leader.
