EMILY's List Pushes for Woman President

Initiative called "Madame President."


The biggest question looming for 2016 is whether former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will run. But the pro-Democratic women's group EMILY's List isn't waiting for Clinton's decision to start advocating for a woman in the White House.

EMILY's List launched "Madam President," its initiative to support a female presidential candidate in 2016, at the National Press Club Thursday. The initiative will include a six-figure digital buy to reach women online as well as events in key presidential states such as Iowa, Nevada and New Hampshire.
