Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on Hillary Clinton Announcement of Candidacy for President in 2016

Hillary Clinton’s experience as Secretary of State, as a U.S. Senator, and as a policymaker shows she can stand up to the adversity of a presidential campaign. As Sen. Barbara Boxer said, she was a workhorse in the U.S. Senate and she is going to relate to the needs of everyday Americans.

Having a strong woman candidate running for president is sure to inspire a new generation to take action. Hillary Clinton’s candidacy will have that effect on women and younger Californians.

I welcome her entry into the Democratic Party primary.
