2020 democratic presidential candidate: Wayne Messam

Alex Toth

Age: 44

Experience: Mayor of Miramar, Florida (2015-present)

Fun Fact: Messam was a national champion in college football at Florida State, and briefly played in the NFL.

Another candidate looking to be the first sitting mayor to be elected President is Wayne Messam. The mayor of Miramar, Florida has perhaps the lowest national profile of any candidate in the race, but that isn’t stopping him from making a bid for the White House.  

Messam has argued in favor of statehood for Puerto Rico and cancelling student loan debt, but his campaign thus far has struggled to gain ground among a crowded Democratic primary.
