Hillary Rodham Clinton’s second presidential bid was announced by campaign chairman John Podesta Sunday alongside the launch of hillaryclinton.com.
In a video posted to the new campaign website, Clinton portrayed herself as a “champion” to everyday people.
“Americans have fought there way back from tough economic times, but the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top,” Clinton says. “Everyday Americans need a champion. I want to be that champion.”
According to Podesta, Clinton is set to “hit the road to Iowa to start talking directly with voters.”
A large portion of the campaign will undoubtedly be spent deflecting attention away from the myriad of political scandals Clinton embroiled herself in during her time as Secretary of State.
Clinton joins Republicans Rand Paul and Ted Cruz in the presidential race for 2016.
