Democrats Try to Dance Their Way into America’s Heart

Tom Steyer Dancing

Presidential candidate Tom Steyer (D) on Monday joined the crowd of former and current Democrat candidates attempting to dance their way into America’s heart.

Steyer, along with Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), danced along to music at a Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day event in Columbia, South Carolina, on Monday. Steyer, at times, was more into the music, pumping his arms and rocking back and forth, as Sanders casually swayed and Klobuchar clapped along:

This is far from the first time Democrat hopefuls have busted a move on the campaign trail. Klobuchar, for instance, made an entrance at the Polk County Democrats Steak Fry, which featured over 10,000 sizzling steaks, by jumping up and down to a drumline. At one point, it appeared she was attempting a version of the “Running Man”:

Sanders has also let loose on the campaign trail, dancing at the “Labor Solidarity Dinner” in Manchester, New Hampshire, in November to ABBA’s “Dancing Queen”:

In August, Andrew Yang (D) took a moment to “jazzercise” to “The Cupid Shuffle” during a campaign stop in Beaufort, South Carolina.

“As seriously as Andrew and the team take the issues of this country, that’s why he’s running for president,” Yang’s campaign press secretary Randy Jones said at the time. “It’s also important to not take yourself too seriously all the time and have a little bit of fun”:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has also garnered attention for her moves on the campaign trail, dancing to Aretha Franklin’s “Respect” at a rally that coincided with Iran launching missile attacks targeting bases housing U.S. troops in Iraq. Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) attributed the critiques of her moves to sexism:

Former presidential candidate Julián Castro (D), who appeared alongside Warren as she danced to “Respect,” has also danced on the trail, twirling a woman around as supporters excitedly looked on:

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), who recently caught winter waves in New Hampshire, has also engaged in a bit of light dancing on the trail:

While she no longer has a presence in the race, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) remains one of the most prolific dancers of the crowded 2020 field, busting a move on numerous occasions. She even ended her campaign with a final dance:
