#WYSC: 2020 candidates are blowing fundraising records


On Today's WYSC, presidential races have gotten more expensive over the years, especially when it comes to running against an incumbent. The 2020 race is set to break records, with more than half a billion dollars already having been raised. Also on today's show, the Justice Department's Inspector General found the FBI's probe into several Trump Campaign associates was not politically motivated. Lastly, the Supreme Court refused to hear a challenge to Kentucky's "ultrasound law," granting anti-abortion advocates a win.

Tom Hanks shares some encouragement with the 2020 graduates of Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. "Congratulations, you are the chosen ones," the actor who beat coronavirus shared in a video message to them. "You have been chosen in many ways." Apple's CEO, Tim Cook delivered a commencement speech from home, as well. "We can curse the loss of something that was never going to be: Or we can see reasons to be grateful."'s Leigh Scheps has more.
It's a missed capstone moment for these college grads, but that hasn't stopped them from finding new ways to celebrate.
These types of candidates are long shots. But political experts say the current circumstances could be the perfect recipe for a 3rd party candidate.
As Joe Biden prepares to pick his vice president, a new Newsy/Ipsos poll shows Democrats are enthusiastic about former 2020 candidates.
