Former VA Gov. Terry McCauliffe Won’t Run For WH

Politico reports:

Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced Wednesday night that he would not be running for president in 2020, quelling speculation that he would join an already sizable group of Democratic hopefuls vying to push President Donald Trump out of office.

“I love campaigning. I love fighting,” McAuliffe told CNN’s Chris Cuomo. “I would love to have been on that debate stage with Donald Trump, but, you know, we’ve got to move forward and we’ve got to bring our party together.“

McAuliffe said he would rather concentrate his energy on helping Democrats maintain control of the Virginia Legislature, though he thinks he could have beaten Trump “like a rented mule” and would have done a good job in the White House.
