Michael Avenatti says he’s not running for president

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels, said Tuesday he will not make a run for president in 2020, saying he’s doing so out of “respect for my family.”

“I do not make this decision lightly – I make it out of respect for my family. But for their concerns, I would run,” he said in a statement on his Twitter account.

He also took a shot at Democrats, saying the party needs to nominate a candidate who could topple President Trump.

“The party must immediately recognize that many of the likely candidates are not battletested and have no real chance at winning. We will not prevail in 2020 without a fighter,” he said. “I remain hopeful that the party finds one.”
