The Iowa Caucus — the first stop in the 2020 election — is just over 200 days away, and presidential hopefuls are descending on the state to make their case. But Iowa isn’t alone getting extra attention this time of year. With more than 20 candidates in the Democratic primary other early primary states including New Hampshire, South Carolina, Nevada and California are important stops on the road to the White House. To date, only former MA Governor Bill Weld has stepped forward to challenge President Trump in the GOP primary.
AIM advocates in each of these states have been hard at work over the past few months meeting with the presidential hopefuls, sharing their personal story and asking each candidate what they’ll do to address the growing Alzheimer’s crisis if they become president.
Take a look at just a few of the highlights below.

Between now and election day in 2020 AIM and our advocates will continue to ask all candidates running for elected office how they will act in the fight against Alzheimer’s. We hope you’ll join us this election season on the #Road2ENDALZ. Head over to our Election Center to learn more about how you can get involved.
