Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., urged his former Senate colleague Hillary Clinton to run for President in a speech in Iowa last night, saying “it’s time for a woman to be President.”
Schumer, the third-ranking Democratic member of the Senate, endorsed the former secretary of state during the Iowa Democratic Party’s annual Jefferson Jackson dinner in Des Moines. In remarks prepared for delivery to the crowd of 750 Democratic supporters, he says that with Clinton, the party can “vanquish the Ted Cruz, Tea Party Republicans in 2016.”
“It’s time for a woman to be president,” Schumer said. “That’s why I am urging Hillary Clinton to run for president. And, when she does, she will have my full and unwavering support.
