Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told the BBC on Tuesday that she's "under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about" entering the 2020 race.

What she's saying: Clinton told BBC Radio 5 Live's Emma Barnett that she thinks "all the time" about what it would've been like to be commander in chief if she had defeated President Trump in 2016.

The big picture: With no clear frontrunner in the crowded Democrats' 2020 field, billionaire former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg filed paperwork last Friday to enter the 2020 presidential primary in Alabama, though he has yet to decide if he'll run.

  • Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick is thinking about joining the race, per AP.

Leopoldo López, a former political prisoner and prominent Venezuelan opposition leader, has left the country, his Popular Will party confirmed in a statement Saturday.

Why it matters: He's been highly influential in the push to oust President Nicolás Maduro's regime and a mentor to opposition leader Juan Guaidó. He'd been in the Spanish ambassador's Caracas residence since escaping house arrest in April 2019 following a failed military uprising.
