Democrats must pick a 2020 candidate who can win the Electoral College, 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said Monday during an event in Denver while discussing her new book, The Hill reports.

Why it matters: The former secretary of state won the popular vote in the 2016 presidential election but lost to President Trump in the Electoral College. Per The Hill, Clinton said "several of our candidates could win the popular vote, but as I know ... that's not enough."

Pete Buttigieg, who recently rocketed to the top of polls in Iowa, released a $500 billion college affordability plan today, which would make public college tuition free for households earning under $100,000 and inject $120 billion into federal Pell Grants.

The big picture: It contrasts with more expansive proposals from Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, who want to wipe out all college tuition and debt — though nearly every 2020 contender has their own ideas.

2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said Sunday that misogyny was "certainly" a factor in her election loss to President Trump and that social media is fueling attacks on high-profile women, Reuters reports.

"There is a reaction to a lot of the success of women and the roles of women right now, and I think social media has lit that up, in a very destructive and toxic way. People may have thought a lot of things in the past, but now it is amplified and it is viral."
