The potential candidates vying for the 2020 Democratic National Convention being watched and “listed” by the GOP has reached 50, and includes newcomers like Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and former 2016 nominee Hillary Clinton, who continues to hang on.

In mocking the potentials, the GOP called them the “50 Most Beautiful Democrats Running For President,” and suggested their list should be the heir to the now-canceled “50 most beautiful” Capitol Hill people published by The Hill.

“So while 2020 is still a long way away, Democrats have reason to worry about what’s shaping up to be the largest primary field ever, even if it’s not quite 50,” said Michael Ahrens, the Republican National Committee’s rapid response director in a release.

He was obviously having fun, but did point out some pitfalls that could disrupt the race to challenge President Trump in the 2020 general election. Among them, he wrote:

  • Elimination of most or all super-delegates: The base, particularly Team Bernie, wants the DNC to eliminate or curb the roughly 700 party leaders who cast votes for the candidate of their choosing.
  • Highly proportional delegate allocation: Democrats universally allocate delegates in a proportional way based on election results. (With California moving up its primary to Super Tuesday, there’s a greater chance that several candidates will benefit from the most delegate-rich contest of the nominating process.) 
  • Massive primary field.
