Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is weighing in on the 2020 election — and giving advice to former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-T.X., on how to ramp up the 2020 elections.
According to Beto’s campaign manager Chris Evans, Hillary has begun giving the campaign advice on how to win in a crowded Democratic primary.
“Beto is grateful for Secretary Clinton’s leadership and service to our country,” Evans said, according to The Daily Beast.
“He is glad they had the opportunity to talk about how we’re witnessing people in communities all across America step up like never before, unite together, and fight to overcome the greatest set of challenges this country has ever faced,” Evans said.
Despite losing two presidential bids, Hillary’s help has been sought by a number of 2020 Democratic hopefuls. She’s reportedly given advice to South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-M.A., Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Cory Booker, D-N.J.
However, Beto’s campaign is making use of an arsenal of Hillary insiders. He recently hired a number of 2016 alums, including Jeff Berman, who served as a delegate strategist in her 2016 campaign, and Rob Flaherty, who worked for the Hillary campaign as deputy director for digital communications.
