Will Hillary Clinton run for president in 2016? That has been the most talked-about political story for quite some time. She is one step closer to running now that her super PAC has formed, waiting for her decision. Monday, Jan. 28, 2013, CNN had the story.
“We want to be ready to help Hillary when Hillary is ready to run,” explained Allida Black, the group’s chair.
Black said the endeavor was started by seven Clinton supporters with an “extensive network” for fundraising and building grassroots support.
There has been extensive speculation that the “60 Minutes” interview Sunday night with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama was some type of endorsement or introduction of her presidential run.
Interestingly, around the time of Secretary Clinton’s testimony about Benghazi, the news broke that her campaign debt had been retired. According to Businessweek, this was a gift from President Obama’s people. They organized a payoff through working the donor lists until they found donors who could legally contribute and also supported Hillary Clinton. They did so well that the campaign fund was left with $205,000 in surplus.
