Hillary Clinton starts a new political group “Onward Together”.
She announced her new initiative via her tweet feed where she announces “We’re launching Onward Together to encourage people to get involved, organize, and even run for office.”
She also Emailed her followers and urge them to signup. “Resist, insist, persist, enlist,” message on the homepage.
“Onward Together is dedicated to advancing the vision that earned nearly 66 million votes in the last election,” the PAC’s mission statement says. “By encouraging people to organize, get involved, and run for office, Onward Together will advance progressive values and work to build a brighter future for generations to come.”
The Republican National Committee fired back at Clinton with a statement of its own.
“The American people rejected Hillary Clinton six months ago because she’s completely out-of-touch, untrustworthy, and embraced the failed policies of the past,” RNC spokesman Michael Ahrens said. “If Democrats were smart, they’d realize it’s time to move onward from Hillary Clinton altogether.”
Clinton specifically said the PAC would back groups like Swing Left, Color of Change, and Emerge America, and tweeted, “stay tuned for more to come.”
“This year hasn’t been what I envisioned, but I know what I’m still fighting for a kinder, big-hearted, inclusive America. Onward!” Clinton tweeted.
She said “More than ever, I believe citizen engagement is vital to our democracy,” she added. “I’m so inspired by everyone stepping up to organize and lead.”
Onward Together is registered as a 501(c)(4) group, the Internal Revenue Service designation for so-called social welfare nonprofits, which are often cited for a rise in dark money in politics because of their ability to protect donor anonymity.
Mrs. Clinton Said that Howard Dean, Who has been a presidential candidate, the governor, and chairman of the Democratic National Committee would be involved but she did not describe what will be the role he would play.
