The chairman of Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign said Tuesday she is not looking to launch another White House run.
John Podesta was asked about Clinton's chances of joining the 2020 race during an appearance on CNN.
"I love her, I wish she was president, she got 3 million more votes than Donald Trump did. She would have been a great president, but she says she's not running for president," Podesta said.
"I take her at her word. She's not running for president. [The Democrats have] a lot of great candidates out there right now. I think the Democratic primary's gonna be a spirited one with a lot of great ideas coming forward. I think she would've been a great president, but that's in the past."
Clinton's political career includes serving as a first lady, senator, and secretary of state. She unsuccessfully ran for president in 2008 and 2016.
It was reported over the weekend that Clinton has not ruled out jumping into the 2020 race, which already has several Democratic candidates.
