With a burgeoning Democratic field vying for the 2016 presidential nomination and a crowded Republican group that is already bursting at the seams, all of the presidential hopefuls are desperately trying to stand out and distinguish themselves from their rivals.

With much-anticipated formal campaign announcements, newly unveiled websites, and fresh logos, a number of recently declared presidential candidates have hit the road to take their case directly to the voters.
