A close ally of Hillary Clinton has said that she does not expect her to run for office again.
Neera Tanden, who advised Clinton during her 2008 bid for the Democratic presidential nomination, and president of the Center for American Progress, told CNN’s State of the Union Sunday, “I don’t expect her to ever run for any elected office again.”
Tanden went on to say that she believes Clinton will now focus on issues that affect families since she is no longer running for any office.
“I think she’s going to figure out ways to help kids and families. That’s been what she’s been focused on her whole life. [There are] a lot of issues that are affecting them over the next couple of years,” Tanden told CNN host Jake Tapper.
Tanden’s statement comes after The New York Post published an editorial urging Clinton to run for mayor of New York in a challenge to current New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
“For what it’s worth, Secretary Clinton, we’d love to see you run for mayor. New York City needs you,” the editorial read.
According to Tanden, it’s not going to happen.
