To say that the current Presidential election has been a bit of a fiasco is an understatement. However, it just goes to show the importance of the next election in November, because the candidates are passionate about invoking change and taking the White House back from the firm grip of the current dude in office Donald Trump. Now, as we dwindle down to who the Democratic nominee will be tensions have been mounting and nerves are being tested on a daily basis.

At one point the Democratic hopefuls looked like a long list of names that some had never heard of, mixed in with some of the public's favorite politicians of today including New York mayor Bill de Blasio, California mayor Kamala Harris and New Jersey senator Cory Booker, who ended his almost year long presidential bid after failing to qualify for the debate stage twice. He tweeted about his decision to end his campaign for the presidency with a touching message for all of his followers.

Soon others would follow his lead, including popular presidential hopeful Senator Elizabeth Warren. She was a very influential and charismatic proponent for change, however had a hard time finding an audience outside of her loyal base of supporters. And young women of all ages flocked to take pictures with her as she would make a "pinkie swear" to keep moving forward. However, the idea of having a woman run the country is one that still challenges many Americans. And Warren spoke on that when she dropped out of the race.

“One of the hardest parts of this is all those pinkie promises,” a visibly emotional Ms. Warren said, describing the “trap” of gender for female candidates.

“If you say, ‘Yeah, there was sexism in this race,’ everyone says, ‘Whiner!’” Ms. Warren said. “If you say, ‘No, there was no sexism,’ about a bazillion women think, ‘What planet do you live on?’”

Now, with just former vice president Joe Biden and Vermont senator Bernie Sanders still in for the long haul Biden is prepared to spend a lot of money to get our votes.

Joe Biden on Saturday launched a $12 million ad buy -- the largest paid media blitz of his campaign -- that's fueled by a big fundraising windfall since his campaign's comeback last week.

Biden will spend $8 million on TV with the rest of the money spent on radio and digital platforms. The ads will air across six states that vote in the next two weeks: Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi, Florida, Illinois and Ohio, his campaign announced.

Biden also revealed that he's raised $22 million towards his presidential bid in the last five days. Check out one of his new political ads below.
