Please add Terry McAuliffe to market for Democratic nomination for president

McAuliffe has just finished a successful four-year governorship in Virginia, a purple state, had a Democratic successor elected, and is well connected in the Democratic party. You have added already a bet if he will run for president, under

Please add him to the market for the Democratic nomination for president, under

I think he could win many voters who are more centrist and prefer an experienced administrator as a candidate. Historically, being governor of a larger state has been the best preparation for running as president, and there are now too few governors on the list of candidates: only Tim Kaine (also Virginia, a senator now), Cuomo (old), and Jerry Brown (very old). Hickenlooper and Bullock are also not on the list.

I'm in favor of adding all of McAuliffe, Hickenlooper, Bullock, as well as Inslee, Sally Yates, and Seth Moulton. Thanks!

I think he is the chosen one the DNC will announce in April or May.  He's raised so much money, the DNC owes him.   I think Trump opposition research knows this, which is why VA government is in the headlines now.   

McAuliffe is owed for raising so much money for the DNC.

If McA was the chosen one, he'd probably be in these markets. It is the unchosen ones being left out and most likely for a reason.
