After her crushing loss in the presidential race on November 8, Hillary Clinton is finished with politics, longtime Clinton confidant and current Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe told WTOP's "Ask the Governor" program.

According to The Washington Post, McAuliffe said he has talked to the Clinton, and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, since the election, and it has been hard on them.

"I mean, can you imagine having to go through this?" he said. "I've had many conversations with the Clinton family. We're friends. It's hard, very tough."

Clinton had been widely expected to defeat Republican Donald Trump in the November 8 election, but he scored a surprising victory in the wee hours of November 9 as he flipped several swing states into the GOP column.

"I think on Election Day everybody felt pretty good," McAuliffe said. "I think the Trump campaign thought they were gonna lose. And you know, this is what happens in elections."

He was asked whether the Clintons are finished with politics at this point.

"I think so, sure," he said. "I don’t think Hillary has any interest in running again. I'll let her speak for herself. I haven't asked her that. I think the president's [Bill Clinton] probably going to go back, working on all the good deeds he's done before in helping people around the globe. You know, there are elections. We've got to move forward. As governor of Virginia, I've got to move forward."

McAuliffe said he sent Trump a letter of congratulations after the election, and though he has known him for years has not talked personally with him since. He does, however, hope to work with the incoming president on issues such as military infrastructure spending.

McAuliffe was campaign manager for Hillary Clinton's unsuccessful presidential bid in 2008 and was a fundraiser for the Clintons before that.
