Gray said in an interview on Hill.TV’s “Rising” Tuesday, “If I were in her shoes, I would be seriously considering it.” 

“I was there on election night when she gave her concession speech, and at that moment, she gave some strong indication that she was going to run again, saying that the fight wasn’t over, and the kind of dark money interference that she believes was really the death nail to her campaign wasn’t going to go unanswered,” Gray explained. 

“I think there’s a pretty strong likelihood that she’s going to run again,” she added.
