Warren Buffett says that the presidential election for 2016 is already in the bag. And he thinks that the winter is none other than Hillary Clinton.
“Hillary is going to run,” said the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway at a Fortune magazine conference on Tuesday. And he added, “Hillary is going to win.”
Buffett was incredibly confident that the former Secretary of State was going to win her place in the White House. He was even willing to bet money on the outcome. The investor of renowned fame, however, was not as confident about who her major opponent would be if she chooses to run.
“I don’t know,” said Buffett about a potential challenger for Clinton from the Republican Party.
He’s not the only uncertain one. Republican voters have about 15 potential candidates to choose from, according to a story published on Tuesday by Politico. Some of the names thrown around as potential candidates include Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida.
“There’s going to be a lot of people that want to do it,” said Buffett.
It should be no surprise that Buffett is supporting Clinton. He backed her in 2008 when she first ran for the highest office in the land. During that time, he even offered support for Barack Obama, who was only a senator then.
