REPORT: Hillary Clinton to Speak at NY Dem Convention, Speculation Grows Over Third White House Run

Former Secretary of State and twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will reportedly address a major Democrat Convention in New York next week.

The speech is fueling new speculation the ex-Senator from the Empire State could be considering a third run for the White House.

“She’s beloved by the mainstream members of the Democratic Party and her popularity is likely higher than that of President Biden. It’s good for her because it keeps her relevant and her appearance is likely meant to galvanize the party and the audience,” said one Democratic insider, according to CNBC.

“We’ve reached out to a number of people to speak and, you know, we’re waiting back on confirmation from a number of people. So there are a few things in the works,” said Jay Jacobs, chair of the New York State Democratic Party. “We’ve reached out to a number of folks, we’re not going to say who we’ve reached out to.”

Clinton addressed the state of her party during a December interview with ‘Sunday Today.’

“I think that it is a time for some careful thinking about what wins elections, and not just in deep-blue districts where a Democrat and a liberal Democrat, or so-called progressive Democrat, is going to win,” she said. “I understand why people want to argue for their priorities. That’s what they believe they were elected to do.”
