While Brazile, speaking Monday at the annual meeting of The Wall Street Journal CEO Council, somewhat jokingly said there could be as many as 30 candidates in the Democratic primary, she said she does not think Clinton will be in the group.
The comment comes as many conflicting messages revolve around whether Clinton will pursue another run at the White House in 2020.
Clinton herself said in late October that “I’d like to be president,” adding that she would not think about a possible run until after the midterm elections. Mark Penn, a former adviser to the Clintons, wrote in The Wall Street Journal in November that “You can expect her to run for president once again” and Clinton has refused to rule out the possibility in interviews.

However, several aides and confidants told The Hill in October that she would not make another bid for president.
“She’s more likely to win Powerball,” Philippe Reines, Clinton’s longtime adviser, told The Hill.
