Hillary Rodham Clinton is running for president. A top adviser to the former first lady and secretary of state made her 2016 plans official on Sunday with an email message sent to veterans of her first presidential campaign.

Clinton is aiming to be the first female president. Clinton enters the Democratic primaries in a strong position to succeed her rival from the 2008 campaign, President Barack Obama.

Following Sunday’s announcement, she’s expected to travel soon to early voting states, including Iowa and New Hampshire.

Clinton has signaled that she intends to run on strengthening economic security for the middle class and expanding opportunities for working families.
