Democrats pondering a presidential run for the 2020 election do not plan to attend this weekend's Women's March, an organization plagued by charges of anti-Semitism.

According to BuzzFeed News, four Democrats who might launch White House bids confirmed they will not be at the march that began in 2017 the day after President Donald Trump was elected.

Sens. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio; Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.; Kamala Harris, D-Calif.; and Cory Booker, D-N.J., all confirmed to BuzzFeed they will not attend the march. Other Democratic hopefuls who did not respond were Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass; former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro; former Vice President Joe Biden; Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii; Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.; Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.; and former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-Texas.

The National Democratic Committee, which in the past has partnered with the Women's March, will not be part of Saturday's event either.

"The DNC stands in solidarity with all those fighting for women's rights and holding the Trump administration and Republican lawmakers across the country accountable," the DNC said in a statement, USA Today reported. "Women are on the front lines of fighting back against this administration and are the core of our Democratic Party."

Two of the Women's March co-chairs, Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory, have been accused of anti-Semitism for their ties to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan. That has led to prominent women denouncing their place as Women's March leadership.
