Jar­rett says she, Mrs. Obama won’t run

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Sally Per­sons

Va­lerie Jar­rett, for­mer se­nior ad­viser to then Pres­i­dent Barack Obama, said Thurs­day that the 2016 elec­tion re­sult was “gut-wrench­ing,” and she did not see the elec­tion results com­ing.

“Elec­tions have con­se­quences,” Ms. Jar­rett said on MSNBC’s “Morn­ing Joe.” “I ac­tu­ally didn’t see the elec­tion com­ing out the way it did.”

Ms. Jar­rett said she will con­tinue her work on is­sues she cares about from the private sec­tor, say­ing the for­mer pres­i­dent and first lady will also likely re­main in the private sec­tor.

When asked if she had any dis­cus­sion with for­mer first lady Michelle Obama about a pos­si­ble run for of­fice, Ms. Jar­rett said, “I don’t think that would be fruit­ful,” adding, “I don’t think she re­ally wants to run for of­fice.”
