Presidential hopefuls line up for endorser not named Obama

Democratic hopefuls are lining up to get the endorsement of former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

A longtime Clinton confidant told Axios the former Secretary of State has discussed the upcoming 2020 presidential election with Senator Cory Booker and Senator Elizabeth Warren, among others.

Warren recently launched an exploratory committee for a possible 2020 White House run, though she’s already been slammed for a few missteps with some questioning her authenticity.

Clinton is reportedly open to meeting with any Democrat who wants to pick her brain about the process.

As for Clinton’s feelings about President Trump, the source told Axios:

“Hillary wants Trump gone. She doesn’t know who’s best able to beat him, but she knows about grueling nomination fights."

In an official statement, Clinton’s spokesman Nick Merrill said: "I won’t comment on private discussions she’s had except to say that she’s more than happy to talk to anyone considering a run about the challenges (as well as the great things) that go with it, and lessons learned on what to watch for in this next cycle (aside from Vladimir)."

Other Democrats rumored to be possibly running in 2020 include Beto O’ Rourke, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and Julian Castro.
