Hilary Clinton will be running for president in the 2016 election

On Sunday, Mrs. Clinton announced to the U.S that she would seek out being president for the  second time as the likely 2016 Democratic nominee.

She released a 2 minute video quoting “Everyday Americans need a champion. And I want to be that champion,” Mrs. Clinton said. “So I’m hitting the road to earn your vote — because it’s your time. And I hope you’ll join me on this journey.”

The video prominently features a black couple expecting a child, a young Asian-American woman, and two men who say they are getting married. It also shows plenty of the white, working-class people who were crucial to her previous White House bid and signals that she intends to make helping the middle class and reducing income inequality major themes of her campaign.

Within the next month, Mrs. Clinton says that she will be going to Iowa to meet with voters and have a kick off event for her campaign.

Mrs. Clinton was the first lady ever elected to the United States Senate along side her President husband Mr. Clinton. Mrs. Clinton’s declaration on Sunday is to be followed by a series of intimate but critical campaign events in Iowa and New Hampshire. She will use them to reintroduce herself to voters and begin to lay out the central theme of her candidacy: improving the economic fortunes of the middle class, with an emphasis on increasing wages and reducing income inequality.


“Being the first woman to run for president with a real chance of winning, that’s a wild card, but potentially a net positive, particularly for undecided women,” said Scott Keeter, director of survey research at the Pew Research Center.
