In a two minutes long video Hillary Clinton confirmed what most people already had expected: She will try to become America's first female president.
- I will do my part. I stand as a candidate to become president of the United States, said Clinton in the video that was posted on her own campaign website on Sunday.
- Americans need someone who fights for them. I will be that person, she says.
Clinton, who lost to Barack Obama in the Democratic nomination for election in 2008, is expected to travel to Iowa shortly. The state is the first to hold the nominating election early in 2016.
Her candidacy was first known through emails that Clinton's campaign manager John Podesta sent to the financial contributors and supporters on Sunday.
- She will travel to Iowa to talk with voters. There will be an official campaign starting next month, he writes in the email.
Eighteen months before the presidential election, there is little to suggest that the Democrats will rally around any other candidate than Clinton. She has remained stable at around 60 percent support among the party members in the polls lately, according to Politico.
