Seth Moulton's 'GMA' interview on his 2020 presidential candidacy

In December, Moulton announced his support for the Green New Deal, a resolution that urges Congress to hand the government a monopoly over the U.S.'s energy industry in order to move the nation entirely away from fossil fuels.

Moulton is now the third MA candidate who has entered the race, along with Democratic Sen. "But we're a country that, at our best, thinks that we might", the three-term congressman said in a video as he launched his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. "It's time for our generation to step up and do the same", Moulton said in an announcement video posted early Monday.

Moulton, 40, was one of the ringleaders of last year's failed push by some House Democrats to prevent Nancy Pelosi from regaining the speaker's gavel.

Representative Seth Moulton has jumped into the 2020 presidential campaign, becoming the latest Democrat to join the race to unseat President Trump. Another one of those leaders - Rep. Tim Ryan of OH - announced his candidacy for president earlier this month. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.).

By launching a long-shot White House bid, Moulton may be able to raise his profile to be an even larger part of that younger Democratic generation, but he faces many obstacles in gaining traction in a crowded field that has already found two young, white male candidates to latch on to, in South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg and former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke. Bernie Sanders addresses a rally in North Charleston, S.C., on March 14.

The Iraq War veteran said he plans to focus on the issues of patriotism, security, and service.

Sanders is a self-described democratic socialist.

Moulton was first elected to Congress in 2014 after mounting a primary challenge against John Tierney, a fellow Democrat who had held his seat for 18 years.
