Hillary Clinton to announce presidential run on social media Sunday
By Jordan Chariton, The Wrap
Hillary Clinton will make her long-awaited second presidential run announcement Sunday with a video message on social media,according to CNN.
The video has been shot and is reportedly being edited now—Clinton will hit the campaign trail soon after the announcement, reportedly going to Iowa as one of her first stops.
Clinton’s second presidential campaign will center on reintroducing her to the country and telling her biographical story. Previous reports suggest she’ll take nothing for granted this time around, campaigning heavily in states she lost in 2008 as well as working to build a grassroots, small-donor network instead of relying too heavily on big donors.
The former First Lady and Secretary of State will be the focus of Republican candidates as well as conservative media, as she is the frontrunner to win the presidency this early in the process.
In the last few weeks, Clinton has been responding to controversy surrounding her personal email use while she was Secretary of State. A media firestorm ensued once The New York Times reported Clinton had used a separate personal email for the majority of her business as the country’s top diplomat.
Conservative media seized on the story, painting it as another example of Clinton secrecy. Hillary held a press conference, suggesting she has nothing to hide and would hand over as many of her emails as possible.
