Hillary Clinton said Wednesday she would continue to engage with the Vermont senator, despite his endorsement of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Bernie Sanders.
In an interview with ABC News, Clinton told host George Stephanopoulos that she’s encouraged by Sanders’ decision to endorse her, and said she’s not opposed to the former secretary of state campaigning for Sanders if he’s the Democratic nominee.
“I would not be supporting anyone that would endorse Bernie Sanders,” Clinton said.
“I think it would be a very strange thing for me to do.
I think I would do my very best to keep up with Bernie and to keep him on the trail.”
Asked if she had any regrets, Clinton said she’d look back at her time as a senator and would consider her actions as an example to future senators and congresswomen.
“The decision to get involved in the Democratic Party and to run for president is something that I’m very proud of,” Clinton continued.
“But at the same time, I have to be very clear: I will continue to work hard to ensure that we elect the best person for the job.”
Clinton has not formally announced her presidential bid.
She did say last week that she would consider running for the Democratic nomination in 2020.
