As Hillary Clinton Readies 2016 Presidential Run, Progressives Await Answers

October 10, 2020 0 By HearthstoneYarns

Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is prepared to officially announce her intention to run for president on Sunday, ending months of hints and speculation over her candidacy plans and picking up where her 2008 campaign left off.

The formal declaration will come in a casual manner, with a social media push starting on Twitter, “followed by a video and email announcement” and a campaign visit to Iowa.

Clinton’s announcement will make her the third formally declared candidate for president, and the front-runner for the Democratic party, with only Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky officially running.

While Clinton is the presumptive Democratic nominee, progressives in Washington are ready to challenge her stance on a range of populist issues, particularly over her economic legacy.
