Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) a potential 2020 presidential candidate wasn’t too eager to say whether he thought Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) could win the Democratic primary during an interview on Wednesday.

Fox News’ Bret Baier asked Sanders if he thought O’Rourke, who lost his Senate bid, could win the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2020.

“Well, you got to — I think it’s a little bit premature. You know we’ve got a few — a little bit — a little bit of time left before that,” Sanders said.

Baier followed up by asking Sanders about his own presidential ambitions and whether he might also run for president again.

“Well, you know, when you’re going to take on Wall Street and you’re going to take on the drug companies, and take on the insurance companies, before I decided that I want to run, I got to make sure that there is that grassroot support,” Sanders said. “If there is, I’ll run. If there isn’t, I won’t. But we’re taking on, big time, some of the most powerful special interests in this country.”
