Former Congressman John Delaney of Maryland, who in the summer of 2017 became the first major Democratic politician to declare his candidacy, spoke about his faith in an interview with CNBC last December.

“My wife and I are active Catholics. We identify very much with the social justice mission of the church and I think that has made me much more oriented to the Democratic Party,” said Delaney.

“… even though I’m a capitalist and I’ve spent most of my career in the private sector as an entrepreneur starting businesses, I believe strongly that there’s a role for government to prepare our citizens for the world and to create a safety net for those that are inevitably left behind.”
