SHOW TRANSCRIPT

U.S. Rep. Seth Moulton entered the 2020 presidential race on Monday.

"We need to restore our moral authority in everything we do. Whether it's appointing a Cabinet member, negotiating a treaty or signing an executive order, I will always uphold America's values," Moulton said in his campaign announcement video.

Moulton served four tours of duty in Iraq as a U.S. Marine before he was elected to the House of Representatives in 2014.

More recently, Moulton unsuccessfully attempted to replace Nancy Pelosi as House speaker after Democrats regained control of the House following the 2018 midterm elections.

Moulton plans to hit the campaign trail running. He's scheduled to travel to New Hampshire on Tuesday. And by the end of the week, he'll have already campaigned in South Carolina, Iowa, California and Nevada.

Moulton is the 19th Democrat to enter the 2020 race. He's also the third candidate to represent Massachusetts, behind Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren and former Republican Gov. Bill Weld.
