Sen. McCaskill Endorses Clinton Presidential Run in 2016

The former secretary of state has yet to announce that she will run


(Reuters)—Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has not committed to a run for president in 2016 but on Tuesday she picked up an endorsement from Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill, who announced she is supporting a group encouraging Clinton to run for the White House again.

McCaskill, who in 2008 backed Barack Obama over Clinton in the Democratic primaries, became the first member of Congress to announce her support for Clinton.

She praised the political action committee called Ready for Hillary For using the Internet to build support in the hope that Clinton will again seek the job her husband, Bill, held from 1993 to 2001.
