Clinton, the 2016 Democratic nominee, met with former Vice President Joe Biden to discuss 2020 in early February at Biden’s request. Biden has been considering a run, but has not yet made an announcement about his plans.
Meanwhile, Clinton huddled separately with several other Democrats who have announced presidential campaigns, including California Sen. Kamala Harris, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, the aide said. She also spoke by phone with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, though they didn’t meet.
Other Democrats Clinton has met with about the 2020 race include former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, the aide said. Hickenlooper is believed to be considering a run, though Garcetti has since said he will not run.
Clinton herself has not ruled out a run again for the White House, though she has not signaled she is gearing up for another campaign. During an October speaking event, Clinton was asked if she wanted to run again. Clinton responded “no” but then added, “I’d like to be president.”
