The former Virginia governor said that he's focused on 2018 races, but he certainly sounds like a candidate with presidential aspirations.

When CNN’s Jake Tapper asked him about Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti’s potential 2020 presidential run on Sunday, former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe offered strong hints that he would also pursue a bid for the presidency.

The Democrat first insisted that he would simply focus on the 2018 midterms, but McAuliffe then listed his accomplishments… as a presidential candidate would do.

“When 2020 comes, I hope everybody runs, but our message as a party ought to be like I had in Virginia,” he said.

“How do you grow an economy? Unemployment went from 5.4 to 3.6. How do you invest in education? I had the restoration rights of more than any governor in the history in America. A progressive governor with progressive values, who is pro-business, growing the economy with good-paying jobs, that’s the Democratic message,” he explained.

It seemed like a test run of his 2020 pitch to American voters.
