Hillary Clinton Joins 2008 Race
Posted on Jan 20, 2007
N.Y. Sen. Hillary Clinton jumped into the Oval Office race Saturday, telling her supporters in an e-mail: “I’m in. And I’m in to win.”
Also, GOP Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback announced his candidacy.
Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton jumped into the 2008 presidential race [Saturday], immediately squaring off against Senator Barack Obama and the rest of the Democratic field in what is effectively the party’s first primary, the competition for campaign donations.
“I’m in,” Mrs. Clinton said in an e-mail message to supporters early [Saturday]. “And I’m in to win.”
If successful, Mrs. Clinton, 59, would be the first female nominee of a major American political party, and she would become the first spouse of a former president to seek a return to the White House.
