Hillary Hunts For Role in Midterm Elections
Hillary Clinton has been scouting around for a role in the 2018 midterm elections, according to reports.
Clinton has already founded a PAC to aid congressional Democratic candidates in 2018.
She is studying up on the House districts she won in the 2016 presidential election against President Trump, The Hill reported. Of Republican districts, 23 voted for Clinton over Donald Trump in 2016.
Democrats are particularly focused on California in their efforts to win back the House next year.
“Everything will change if we win in 2018,” Clinton said at the Code Conference in May. “We have to flip 24 seats. I won 23 districts that have a Republican Congress member, seven of them are in California."
Democratic strategists think Clinton can give the party a boost during a time when Democrats are struggling with messaging.
Republicans for their part are happy to see her continue to campaign and believe she is old news to voters and will turn them off to the Democratic party, giving the GOP more victories.
