It is being reported that Hillary Clinton will announce her presidency bid this weekend. According to a Business report, Clinton will follow her announcement with immediate campaign travel, and is set to give her opponents a run for their money.
From Business Insider:
A source with knowledge of Hillary Clinton’s plans has confirmed she will officially announce her 2016 presidential bid on Saturday or Sunday. This will be imminently followed by campaign travel.
A spokesperson for Clinton’s campaign team did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Business Insider.
Clinton’s plans to kickoff her campaign this weekend could complicate Rubio’s kickoff. Both Cruz and Paul enjoyed substantial coverage after their announcements. Cruz also saw his poll numbers improve following his official launch. Coverage of Clinton’s announcement and subsequent trip could diminish the attention give to Rubio’s kickoff due to her status as a strong frontrunner.
As we saw earlier this week, after Rand Paul’s announcement, his campaign donations went through the roof, so apparently the earlier the better will work if Clinton plans to announce her campaign goals. In a recent poll, Clinton leads the Democratic field by nearly 50 percentage points, so this could mean stiff competition for anyone else who decides to run on the Democratic ticket.
Clutchettes, do you plan on voting for Hilary in 2016?
