There are only about three-and-one-half years remaining until the 2016 presidential election. A Republican Super PAC has already been created with one goal in mind, to ‘stop Hillary Clinton from becoming the President.’ It’s not campaign season, but she is scaring the ‘bejesus’ out of Republicans already.
Thursday, America Rising launched “Stop Hillary 2016”, a fundraising effort aimed at quelling support for the former Secretary of State, senator and first lady.
The following is their mission statement. Understand that it is by a group who continues to think George W. Bush was a good President.
“America Rising was formed to prevent Americans from ever having to see another Clinton in the White House,” the website reads. “We’ve seen what a President Hillary Clinton would be like from her time as Secretary of State. We can’t afford another Clinton administration after eight years of President Obama.”
Some of those involved in ‘America Rising’ are former Mitt Romney campaign manager, Matt Rhoades, and former RNC strategists Tim Miller and Joe Pounder.
“We plan to start this enterprise because so many Republicans seem to agree there is a need on our side of the aisle for an entity that is focused solely on holding Democrats accountable for their actions and records using research, candidate tracking, rapid response and digital tools,” Rhoades said in a statement included in the McClatchy report.
The GOP is correct in fearing Hillary. All efforts to downgrade her popularity have failed. While Congress’s favorability rating is at an unbelievably low mark of 10 percent, she remains over 50 percent. This week two Senators voiced support for her 2016 run for the White House, Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.).
“It’s important that we start early, building a grassroots army from the ground up, and effectively using the tools of the Internet, all things that President Obama did so successfully, so that if Hillary does decide to run, we’ll be ready to help her win,” McCaskill said in a statement released by Ready for Hillary, a super PAC behind the possibility of Clinton running.
“I am personally urging Secretary Clinton to run,” Gillibrand added at a Third Way think tank event, according to The Hill. “I’ve told her I plan to support her in any way I can.”
November, 2016, is not as far away as voters might think. On the Republican side, efforts to stay in the spotlight, and place themselves in position to run for the Presidency are currently being made by Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, and others, including the possibility of another effort by Michelle Bachmann. (Please!)
Evidence of Hillary’s strength is the fact that this Super PAC has already been formed. She scares the ‘bejesus’ out of the GOP.
