One of America’s favorite to-be presidents, Hillary Clinton, is rumored to be making a statement this Sunday at noon that she is starting her Campaign for the presidential elections. She will post a comment and a clip on Twitter, which will represent the kickoff in her fight for presidency in 2016. This does not come as a shock, even if she would be the first female president to govern the U.S.
The former secretary of state is ready for her second round in the battle to become the leader of the United States, according to the most recent press releases. She will be the first Democratic candidate to declare running for president.
The announcement will be followed by press conferences held in various states of the U.S. She will be starting with Iowa, where she has focused her April campaign. This state was considered a weak spot for Clinton, as she was the third favorite candidate after Obama and John Edward in 2008. The campaign takeoff in Iowa seems a good idea now if one takes a look at the poll issued on April 9, which showed that Hillary was slightly behind her most fierce opponent by 1 percent. Senator Rand Paul seems to be in the lead not only in Iowa but also in Colorado and Virginia, according to a survey released by Quinnipiac University. Hillary’s operation in Iowa will be carried out with the help of important political figures such as Tom Vilsack, Brenda Cole and Lily Adams, who have very well-established roles in running the campaign in this state.
Hillary has lost ground to Paul after accusations of being dishonest were launched. These were a result of her presumably breaking the rules earlier this year, when she used her private email account at State Department. However, the incident was not enough to take her off the charts and she still represents a major threat to Paul’s chances to become president.
Nick Merrill, Clinton’s spokesman, refused to reveal the Democratic candidate’s plans for the campaign, even if pressure was made and there were numerous requests in this respect.
Clinton’s campaign will be based in New York, as expected, given that the reports have already mentioned that the headquarters were established in the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood.
There is no question now that Hillary is one stone’s throw away from declaring her candidacy. The question that still remains, though, on many people’s lips is whether or not America is ready for a female president.
