Democratic U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton is officially running for president.
In a video posted to his website, the former Marine Corps officer and current representative from Massachusetts announced his campaign for the presidency in 2020.
"Decades of division and corruption have broken our democracy and robbed Americans of their voice," he said in his announcement video.
He joins a crowded field of Democrats running to oppose President Donald Trump in 2020, which includes U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, also from Massachusetts.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld has also announced a run on the GOP side to challenge Trump.
