Already a 'Stop Hillary' PAC
Hillary Clinton is not going to have a smooth path to the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016. The passions aroused by her candidacy in 2008 will almost certainly re-emerge the closer we get to primary season.
There is already at least one "Stop Hillary" PAC and there are likely to be more.
A conservative effort to oppose a possible Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign is stepping up its game this week.
The Stop Hillary PAC is set to announce its leadership team Monday, according to a report from CNN. It will be led by conservative Colorado State Sen. Ted Harvey, who was outspoken against recent gun control laws in the state. Garrett Marquis of John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign is also joining the PAC, as well as Alex Shively, a former aide to Georgia Rep. Tom Price; Jacob Leis, a Colorado-based political strategist; and Dan Backer, a Washington attorney and lobbyist.
After announcing its leadership team, the group also is releasing a video later this week.
"We're supporting anything that is the opposite of Hillary," Marquis said, according to CNN. "We will play however needed, wherever Hillary is playing. If she endorses in the Virginia governor's race, we will go there. Assuming she is active in Iowa, we will be there, too, and we will make some considerable noise."
There is likely to be a "Stop Hillary" Democratic group soon as well. But until the Democratic presidential picture comes more into focus, such efforts are not likely to make much headway.
