Former Secretary of State and New York Senator, Hillary Clinton, will be announcing her second run for the presidency this Sunday, CNN.com is reporting. After announcing, Clinton will be making visits in Iowa and New Hampshire.
“The trip to Iowa, where a third-place finish in 2008 ultimately led to the collapse of her presidential aspirations, illustrates what aides say is a commitment to not take anything for granted in her second bid for the White House, even though she dominates the likely Democratic field in 2016,” CNN.com reported, “Clinton has already filmed her campaign video, a person close to the campaign said, which outlines the central themes of her second bid for the White House. The message is intended to send a signal to Democrats that she intends to aggressively fight for the party’s presidential nomination.”
Hillary Clinton wrote in the epilogue of her upcoming memoir, “Becoming a grandmother has made me think deeply about the responsibility we all share as stewards of the world we inherit and will one day pass on. Rather than make me want to slow down, it has spurred me to speed up.”
As Hillary Clinton is announcing she will run for president again, it will bring back memories of the 2008 campaign for the Democratic nomination that she lost to Barack Obama. That campaign started with the surprise win by Obama in Iowa, the very state where Clinton will begin this current run for president that she is announcing on Sunday.
“Central to Clinton’s second presidential run will be reintroducing the former first lady — on her own terms — to the American people,” CNN.com reports, “Democrats close to Clinton have started to call her the most unknown famous person in the world. Their argument is that people know of Clinton — she has near 100% name recognition in most polls — but they don’t know her story.”
FoxNews.com reported the former First Lady and Secretary of State will be announcing her run for president via social media on Sunday. Clinton will be the first Democratic candidate to official announce a run for the office, and if elected would be the first woman to be president.
“Clinton would join the race after two Republicans — Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky — already declared. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., also is expected to announce his plans next week,” FoxNews.com reported.
Clinton might be soon facing a challenge for the Democratic nomination from former Rhodes Island Governor Lincoln Chafee, the Inquisitr reported. Chafee is a former Republican who served as U.S. Senator, before he become an independent and got elected governor in 2008. In 2013, he become a Democrat.
