Hillary Rodham Clinton officially announced that she is running for president.
The former first lady and secretary of state made her 2016 plans official on her campaign website Sunday.
She says in a video posted to her YouTube account that “everyday Americans need a champion. I want to be that champion.”
“So you can do more than just get by, you can get ahead. And stay ahead.”
Clinton is then seen listening to voters before the video cuts to her speaking outside a home. “I’m getting ready to do something too, I’m running for president,” she says, before emphasizing to voters that it is “your time.”
“Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times, but the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top,” she said.
Hillary Clinton presents herself ‘a champion for everyday Americans’ in online video:
Clinton is aiming to be the first female president.
Clinton enters the Democratic primaries in a strong position to succeed her 2008 rival, President Barack Obama.
Following Sunday’s announcement, she’s expected to travel soon to early voting states, including Iowa and New Hampshire.
She has since tweeted a message to her followers to reinforce her slogan:
“Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion”
