(Mike Gravel dropped out of the race on 8/6/19) Mike Gravel is the former United States Senator from the state of Alaska, where he served from 1969-1981. During that time he was a vocal opponent of the Vietnam War and notably succeeded in entering the Pentagon Papers into the Congressional Record. Prior to his time in the Senate, he served in the Alaska House of Representatives and was elected Speaker from 1965-1967. He ran for President in 2008 and is something of a YouTube pioneer with his wordless campaign videos “Rock” and “Fire.” Gravel’s 2020 campaign was launched by a pair of teenagers who convinced him to run, and now operate his Twitter, which somehow makes sense in 2019. He also served in the United States Army, and received his B.S. from Columbia University, and his J.D. from the school of hard knocks. Learn more about Senator Gravel below:

We don't expect Mike to win the presidency in 2020. But we do expect his ideas to win the future.— The Gravel Institute (@GravelInstitute) June 16, 2019
