Jewish Democratic activists have organized an effort to encourage Hillary Clinton-the former first lady, U.S. senator, and secretary of state-to run for president in 2016.
Leading Jewish Democrats Marc Stanley, Fran Katz Watson, and Steve Rabinowitz are behind “Jewish Americans Ready for Hillary” and its website. The initiative-a constituency group of the broader “Ready for Hillary” initiative-seeks to “organize and activate Jewish Americans to volunteer, speak out and give and raise money to the premier effort encouraging the would-be campaign of Hillary Rodham Clinton,” according to a press release.
“We love [Hillary Clinton]. It’s that simple. We want her to be president. And now, we have one more way to show her that we want her to run,” said Rabinowitz, a former White House press aide for President Bill Clinton.
