Democrats are in the middle of a presidential primary in 2020, and while the field is relatively small, they are already taking heat for their political and economic ties to corporations.
The first Democratic presidential debate took place in Brooklyn, New York, in September.

Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), are locked in a fierce battle with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, a former senator who was a first lady and first lady of the United States.
They both are fighting to become the first African-American presidential nominee in the country.
Sanders has a wide-ranging record of progressive policy ideas.
Ellison has focused on economic and social justice issues.
The two are also on opposing sides of the immigration issue, and their stances on the Keystone XL pipeline and gun control have been polarizing.
Both candidates, however, have a solid record of running for office and are currently in the lead.
The 2016 Democratic presidential nomination saw the first contested Democratic primary between Clinton and Sanders.
While the candidates won, their campaigns did not go head to head.
In 2020, Democrats are also in the midst of a primary battle between former Maryland Gov.
Martin O’Malley and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D).
O’Lamers challenge to Clinton and Warren came as Warren was taking heat from some of her supporters for not endorsing the former secretary of state in the Democratic primary.
Warren also has been criticized for supporting a tax plan that the Congressional Budget Office says will cost the federal government $1.2 trillion over the next decade.
Both Warren and O’Malleys primary challenge has been fueled by a large fundraising advantage over their rivals, and both have raised $60 million through early September, according to a Washington Post analysis of Federal Election Commission filings.
The Sanders campaign is still largely a grassroots operation, relying on volunteers and small-dollar donations.
The DNC is also working to boost its support base by launching a new website and television advertising, but the Sanders campaign has been largely inactive in recent weeks.
The race has been close, with both candidates raising $20 million in July and $24 million in August.
That is a lot of money for a candidate who has only been out of the race for a few weeks, and it puts Democrats in a very tight race, with Sanders holding a slight lead.
However, both candidates have spent much of the summer working on their platforms, and Sanders’ campaign has not focused on the issue of immigration reform.
Sanders and O`Malley are both expected to announce their presidential bids at the end of September.
