A trio of new political groups are calling for first lady Michelle Obama to run for president in 2020.

According to The Hill, the Ready for Michelle Super PAC was formed before election day. Two other PACs — Ready for Michelle 2020 and Friends of Michelle 2020 — are also open for business.

Some Democrats got behind Obama and a potential White House run after her speech at the Democratic National Convention over the summer. Now that Republican Donald Trump is the president-elect, there's even more interest from the left at seeing another Obama occupy the Oval Office in four years.

Ready for Michelle has raised, according to The Hill, less than $1,000 in its first 30 days of existence. But it has captured more than 1,000 signatures on a petition that urges Obama to pursue the presidency.

President Barack Obama, for what it's worth, told Rolling Stone the day after the election he doesn't see his wife running for any political office.

"Michelle will never run for office. She is as talented a person as I know," he said. "You can see the incredible resonance she has with the American people. But I joke that she's too sensible to want to be in politics."

The Washington Post published a story Sunday that discussed the potential Democratic presidential candidates for the 2020 election. Michelle Obama was on the list alongside several veteran politicians and one newcomer, Senator-elect Kamala Harris of California.
