Michael Avenatti might be throwing his hat into the ring for the 2020 Democratic nomination. How he plans to get through the identity politics based Democratic primary is anybody’s guess.
The Des Moines Register reports:
Michael Avenatti in Iowa: ‘I’m exploring a run for the presidency of the United States’
Michael Avenatti has arrived in Iowa.
After three canceled flights and a 700-mile road trip, the lawyer known for representing adult film actress Stormy Daniels in her case against Republican President Donald Trump, is ready to put his stake in the ground in the first-in-the-nation caucus state.
“I’m exploring a run for the presidency of the United States, and I wanted to come to Iowa and listen to people and learn about some issues that are facing the citizens of Iowa and do my homework,” Avenatti told the Des Moines Register in an interview Thursday.
Avenatti, who rose to prominence as an outspoken critic of the president, toured the Iowa State Fair Thursday posing for selfies with fans. He is scheduled to speak at the Democratic Wing Ding fundraiser Friday night in Clear Lake.
That event, a celebrated platform for presidential hopefuls and rising stars alike, hosted Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in 2015. Then-U.S. Sen. Barack Obama headlined the event during his first run for president in 2007.

He just can’t stand the fact that his fifteen minutes of fame are over.
