McAuliffe confirmed in April that he would not be joining the 2020 presidential race. Instead of adding to a crowded Democratic field vying to challenge President Donald Trump, he said he would concentrate his efforts on helping Virginia Democrats win this year, with the possibility of running for governor or president in the future.

McAuliffe formerly served as chairman of the Democratic National Committee.
