getting ready to fire up the engine!
Hillary Clinton will tour the country this month to promote her new memoir. And she’ll be followed by a rolling advertisement for her possible campaign.
Meet the “Hillary Bus.”
Ready for Hillary, an organization that’s been harnessing support for Clinton since early last year, announced plans for a “coast-to-coast” bus tour this summer. The bus — fondly named the Hillary Bus — will shadow Clinton at a number of stops on her national book tour, the group announced on Wednesday.
The Hillary Bus will also travel to colleges, Democratic events, and state fairs.
The schedule for the bus tour has not been set yet, but is expected to last at least until this year’s midterm elections. In the meantime, the bus has its own Twitter account. The first message read, “getting ready for fire up the engine!” A Ready for Hillary aide noted that the bus will tweet in the first person.
In a statement, Ready for Hillary called the bus a “mobile advertisement allowing our organization to reach new supporters in every corner of America.” The group, which has already amassed an extensive list of fans, plans to sign up new volunteers for a “grassroots army of supporters who are encouraging her to run.”
The group said the Hillary Bus will reach “every corner of America.”
Clinton has said she’ll make up her mind about the presidential race by the end of this year. She kicks off a national book tour, starting in Manhattan, on June 10.
