A slow and steady pace ahead of the race! Hillary Clinton will reportedly announce her candidacy for president of the United States as early as this weekend, April 11-12.
According to multiple outlets, including NBC News and Reuters, the former First Lady is expected to announce her bid for the presidency this Sunday. NBC News reported that Clinton will share the news via social media ahead of her campaign stops next week in Iowa and New Hampshire.
A party official confirmed to Reuters on Friday, April 10, that Clinton will announce her bid via social media with a video. "She's expected to make her intention to run known on Sunday," the insider told Reuters.
This would mark Clinton's second time announcing her bid. Clinton last ran for the Democratic nomination back in 2008, but lost the bid to President Obama. According to Bloomberg, the former Secretary of State will focus on Iowa after learning from her failure during the 2008 caucuses when she came in third after Obama and John Edwards.
If Clinton nabs the Democratic ticket, she will make history as the first woman to run for president under a major political party.
