NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Hillary Clinton is planning to announce her run for president on Sunday, CBS News reported.
The former New York senator and secretary of state will travel to an early voting state within days of her announcement, CBS News reported.
Clinton will first announce her campaign for the Democratic nomination with an online video posted on social media.
It will be Clinton’s second presidential bid. She enters the race in a strong position to succeed her one-time rival, President Barack Obama.
Clinton appears unlikely to face a stiff primary opponent, though a handful of lower-profile Democrats have said they are considering their own campaigns.
If elected, the former first lady would be the nation’s first female president.
