(Newser) – As the Democratic field begins to take shape for 2020, Politico reports that President Trump is worried about Joe Biden—who remains undecided about a run—more than any other candidate. Trump reportedly thinks that Biden would give him the toughest run in a general election, but that's assuming the former VP survives a primary in which rivals seem to be moving ever left. Trump's campaign advisers, meanwhile, have three different names atop their list: They're focusing on California Rep. Kamala Harris ("smart, telegenic, tough," says one strategist), along with Sens. Elizabeth Warren (populist appeal) and Cory Booker (strong donor base). The Hill, meanwhile, reports that Biden is "almost certain" to enter the race. (Read more Election 2020 stories.)
