Hillary Clinton launches new political action group

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has launched a new political action organisation to fight against U.S President Donald Trump’s agenda and raise funds for five prominent progressive groups.

“I believe more fiercely than ever that citizen engagement at every level is central to a strong and vibrant democracy,” Hillary said announcing the launch of her group ‘Onward Together’.

“More than ever, I believe citizen engagement is vital to our democracy. I’m so inspired by everyone stepping up to organise and lead,” the former Secretary of State, said to her supporters as she urged them to contribute to the “remarkable” spirit of political activism.

The announcement comes as Hillary, 69, works to find a new role in an evolving political landscape.

The new group’s website said it aimed to advance progressive values and reminded visitors that Hillary had won nearly 66 million votes in November’s showdown with Trump.

“Onward Together will work to build a brighter future for generations to come by supporting groups that encourage people to organise and run for office,” wrote the former Secretary of State.

Hillary becomes the latest high-profile Democrat to launch an independent group.
