A day after officially announcing her White House bid, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton seems to have tightened her sleeves to start some field work.
According to the reports, Clinton is commencing her poll campaign fundraising program on small scale, before finally launching a massive show.
Even though the Democrat will require at least USD 1 billion in her quest for the 2016 presidential election, she is currently collecting money for only primary election.
Clinton is going without a finance chairman in order to corral the rich contributors. Moreover, her fundraisers will require to just collect USD 27,000 in May for earning their titles as “HillRaisers,” far lower than the six-figure goals that the candidates usually set for the bundlers.
The initial days of the campaign basically talks about building support from the grass-root level for a candidate, who had last ran for office over six years ago and dismantled the infrastructure of her campaign for serving as the country’s top diplomat during US President Barack Obama’s first term.
Clinton’s long-time supporter Alan Kessler said, “It’s a great way to show that the base she had in 2008 is going to be expanded in a lot of different ways.”
Outside groups are also racing in order to drive small-dollar donors to Clinton’s camp.
“It’s go time,” an email announced on Tuesday from Ready for Hillary, a super PAC began in 2013 for urging Clinton to seek the presidential bid in 2016.
The ‘Ready for Hillary’ campaign is presently being winded down by the organizers. The emails of the committee this week to its nearly four million supporters exhort them for heading to her campaign website, www.hillaryclinton.com.
