Al Weaver Reporter

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe predicted that a decision on Hillary Clinton running for president will come in the next 60 days, according to U.S. News & World Report.

“She’s got to make that decision, and she’s got to spend the next 60 days making that decision,” McAuliffe, a longtime Clinton ally, told U.S. News during the Knock Out Abuse Gala Thursday night. “Obviously, I’m close friends with the Clintons, I chaired her last campaign. If you know Hillary, she’s going to make up her own mind. I tell you, I hope she runs.”

“It’s time for a woman president of the United States of America,” he said. “Put the woman issue aside for a minute — she’s tough; she is smart; she is very pro-business; she will get this economy going. She will help the middle class. So, I’m hoping she runs, but you know, it’s her decision.”

“But I’m really hoping she runs, but I’m leaving that decision to her,” McAuliffe added.
