Former US Secretary of State Hillary
Rodham Clinton on Sunday announced that she would seek the presidency
for a second time.
“I'm running for president,” she
tweeted to her more than 3.3 million followers. “Everyday
Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion.”
According to The New York Times,
Clinton is headed to Iowa and New Hampshire, where she will meet with
voters in a series of intimate campaign events.
Clinton is seen near the end of a
two-minute video released just after 3 PM: “So I'm hitting the
road to earn your vote, because it's your time. And I hope you'll
join me on this journey.”
The video features everyday people
“getting ready to do something,” include a couple expecting a
child, a woman returning to work, a man starting a new career and a
gay couple who are planning to wed.
“I'm getting married this summer to
someone I really care about,” a man is heard saying over images of
two men holding hands.
Clinton is the first announced 2016
presidential candidate to support marriage equality.
