Hillary Clinton Picking Up Endorsements From Party Leaders

2016 already looming


Suddenly, congressional Democrats are catching Hillary Clinton fever.

It's still three years until the next presidential election, but already her endorsements from party leaders are piling up.

Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) delivered a speech in Iowa over the weekend urging Clinton to run in 2016, and other Democrats are touting her potential candidacy.

Democratic strategists say it makes sense for lawmakers to line up behind Clinton — even before she's announced her candidacy — because she is virtually assured of winning the party's nomination.
