VoteVets is asking: Who do you want for for President 2020?

Probably not this guy. But who? 

VoteVets, which nationally endorsed Mikie Sherrill, is now looking ahead to 2020. They’ve got a quick straw poll asking who you want for POTUS. You don’t need to be a vet to vote. On vets issues, I walk the line of deploying our service members only when absolutely necessary (read: hardly ever) and making sure we taxpayers underwrite every promise we’ve made to our vets. That’s why I follow VoteVets (and why I always find the vets at any peace march, and walk behind them).

Their poll went out by email today, but they created a link** to vote just for Blue Jersey:

FYI New Jersey Veterans – where they live & how they served: NJ Spotlight has a great map showing New Jersey’s Veteran Population (2013). The interactive feature still works, I looked up my town, but alas the embed code gives you Africa, so you’ll have to go to NJ Spotlight to use it (shout-out to Spotlight’s Colleen O’Dea). Meanwhile, here’s a look at how New Jersey’s veterans break down by era (source: U.S. Census):
