Hillary Clinton, who couldn’t give a reason for her presidential run, supports ‘Run For Something’

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who struggled to provide a compelling justification for her 2016 presidential run, threw her support behind the organization “Run For Something” Monday.

Clinton’s new super PAC, Onward Together, will join up to help “Run for Something” recruit young liberals to run for public office, a press release announced.

“We are so honored and proud to have Hillary Clinton’s support,” Amanda Litman, the executive director/co-founder, said of Clinton’s involvement, adding:

We were delighted to meet with her and share what we’re up to — her passion for supporting the next generation of leaders comes from the heart and will make a difference as we keep growing this organization to help young people take charge in their communities.

Clinton was unable to give a cogent reason for her 2016 presidential run. “Shattered,” a new tell-all book on the Clinton’s 2016 run for the presidency, reveals the struggle Clinton staffers had to pinpoint why Clinton was running in the first place.

“All of the jockeying might have been all right, but for a root problem that confounded everyone on the campaign and outside it,” authors Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes wrote. “Hillary had been running for president for almost a decade and still didn’t really have a rationale.”

“Run for Something” works to get people under 35 years old to run for state legislatures, mayoral offices, and city council seats to better advance progressive values, the group’s website states.
