The chairman of a new political action committee dedicated to preventing Hillary Clinton from winning the White House in 2016 said the organization is about to ramp up its efforts against the former secretary of state because, “I don’t think there’s any doubt she’s running.”
“I don’t think anybody has any misconception that she’s not going to run,” Ted Harvey, a Republican state senator in Colorado, said in a phone interview Monday. “There are tons of huge pro-Hillary PACS that are raising huge amounts of money right now. She is doing everything that a candidate would be doing at this point to be preparing for a full scale national campaign.”
The outfit chaired by Harvey — appropriately called the Stop Hillary PAC — has been working behind the scenes for months, but is about to become much more visible in politics in the coming days.
It announced a slew of political and fundraising hires Monday. On Wednesday, Stop Hillary PAC plans to release a video explaining its mission — though it’s not hard to guess what that is.
