The current field:
The current field:
From here.Joe Biden: The vice president is probably not running, but Draft Biden campaign is egging him on. He says he will decide this summer and has noted that it depends on Hillary Clinton.
Jeb Bush: The brother of former President "Dubya," son of President H.W. and a former governor of Florida will likely run. He already has a successful super PAC and cut ties with outside companies.
Ben Carson: The retired neurosurgeon is probably running. He apologized for saying "prison proves being gay is a choice." He has a presidential exploratory committee.
Chris Christie: The local politics of the Bridgegate scandal haunt the New Jersey governor, but in true N.J. fashion, he's slated to start a "Tell it like it is" tour of New Hampshire next week. He's probably running in 2016; expect an announcement by June.
Hillary Clinton: The former secretary of state is running; sources say she hired Google's Stephanie Hannon for her digital strategy team and signed a lease for her Brooklyn office. She's expected to announce her bid on Sunday.
Ted Cruz: The first Republican definitely running, his announcement was on 3/23 @ Lynchburg University, saying, "The promise of America seems more distant for so many." Calls Jeb Bush "mushy middle" candidate. His focus: the tea party, libertarian and Christian conservative circles. Cruz super PACs are busy raising money.
Carly Fiorina: The former Hewlett Packard exec says there is a 90% chance she will run. Fiorina's super PAC is raising money, and she has hired a top RNC-er to join.
Lindsey Graham: The South Carolina senator probably won't run but isn't a stranger to the all-important first caucus state, Iowa. A potential bid could focus on Graham's foreign policy expertise.
Mike Huckabee: The politician-turned-Fox News host has resigned from his TV gig and could be a strong contender in 2016 with his strong name recognition.
John Kasich: The Ohio governor could be a contender, featuring his popular fiscal conservatism platform.
Bobby Jindal: The governor of La. will probably run. Jindal launched a political group whose name is under scrutiny for similarities with another established group.
Martin O'Malley: The former Md. governor is probably running. He has been a staple in Iowa over the past year and is once again in the state this week
Rand Paul: The Kentucky senator is def running — announced it 4/7 @ Louisville on his mainstream libertarianism platform — but can he escape his father's shadow?
Rick Perry: Former Texas governor is probably running, striking a more serious tone this time around after his rough attempt in 2012. Since leaving his gubernatorial post, he was last spotted touring early primary states and recruiting donors.
Marco Rubio: The Fla. senator will likely run; says he's making a major announcement on 4/13 @ Miami.
Bernie Sanders: The (I) Vt. senator says "we'll see" to 2016. Not clear if he would run as (D) or (I).
Rick Santorum: The former Pa. senator will probably run; sources say he's got a team of fundraisers and has talked to his inner circle about a campaign.
Elizabeth Warren: The Mass. senator says she's not running despite some liberal groups backing a Warren run. Instead, she says to give Clinton a chance to declare if she is running.
Scott Walker: The Wis. governor will probably run, and sources say he's building his team and a campaign plan with former Sen. Jim Talent already on board
Jim Webb: The former Va. senator and Vietnam vet is probably running and currently beefing up his tour d'Iowa.
