Florida Democrat Andrew Gillum meets with Obama amid 2020 speculation

Source: CNN

Andrew Gillum met with former President Barack Obama in Washington on Tuesday, two sources familiar with the matter tell CNN, amid ongoing speculation that the former Democratic nominee for Florida governor might be considering a potential 2020 presidential bid.

It is unclear what was discussed at the meeting between Obama and Gillum, who has been talked about as a possible 2020 presidential contender and hasn't ruled out a bid.

A spokesperson for Obama declined to comment. The former president supported Gillum in his failed bid to become Florida's first African-American governor.

Gillum was in Washington to speak at the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights. There, he punted on the question of running for president in 2020, saying, "I plan on being married to my wife. That is all I am planning."

1. I think people are reading too much into these things, including the Beto meeting reported on...

...earlier today.

Although I'd love to see either of those run for President and win, just because they met Obama recently doesn't mean they're running in 2020.

Don't forget, this morning Obama met with Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton!

2. So Obama has met with both Gillum and Beto. Interesting.

Two rising stars in the Democratic Party.
