Witcover: Bernie Sanders has a harder hill to climb in 2020

Having won 13 million votes in his failed 2016 campaign against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination, it's no surprise that at age 77 Bernie Sanders is trying again in 2020.

But a significant difference this time around is that he will not be alone peddling his message of "revolution" and moving the party further toward liberal or progressive positions.

Four seasoned female Democratic senators — Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Kamala Harris of California, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota — are already in the race vying for the same general constituency, along with several male hopefuls.
