New DNC Chairman Perez Doesn’t Rule Out A Hillary Clinton Run For The Presidency In 2020
New Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez didn’t rule out a Hillary Clinton run for the presidency in 2020 on Sunday.
Perez, speaking on ABC, was asked about Clinton’s continued political statements in the wake of her 2016 defeat to President Trump, including just before the vote for the new DNC chairman Saturday. He said she can run if she wants.
“Everyone who wants to run should run,” he said of the 2020 Democratic primary. “And, I’m confident we’re going to have a robust field of candidates.”
Perez wasn’t much focused on the presidential race Sunday morning, instead touting a win in a special election for the Delaware State Senate Saturday night. That election could have swung the balance of power in the state’s upper chamber, but the Democratic candidate won a convincing victory.
Perez said that’s the kind of race he’s going to be worried about in the future.
