For her first presidential race back in 2007, Hillary Rodham Clinton made it clear she was “in to win”, however it seems this time around, she is holding back on making any formal announcement of her presidential campaign.
According to unnamed advisers and Democrats, Politico reports that the former secretary of State ‘…is strongly considering delaying the formal launch’ of her campaign from April until July and that Clinton, ‘…doesn’t feel under any pressure, and they see no primary challenge on the horizon. If you have the luxury of time, you take it.’
Early stages of the upcoming 2016 presidential race have already gotten underway as several potential candidates have begun organizing while Florida Republican Marco Rubio, has taken steps toward launching a campaign.
Other Republicans Chris Christie, Jeb Bush and Scott Walker have all created committees to assist in fundraising, while Mitt Romney, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Rick Perry are among the Republicans who have gone a step further by bringing on staff in anticipation of White House bids.
Democratic Jim Webb has announced his formation of a presidential exploratory committee, however, the former Virginia Senator is considered a long shot with public polls showing Clinton in the lead of any Democratic rivals.
