Previously Secret Letter Encourages Hillary Clinton to Run in 2016 (Video)

ABC News says every Democratic woman in the U.S. Senate signed a letter earlier this year encouraging Hillary Clinton to run for president in 2016.

The letter came to light earlier this week when Sen. Kay Hagan from North Carolina mistakenly revealed its existence at an event earlier this week.

“All of the Senate Democratic women have written her a letter encouraging her to run,” Hagan told a gathering organized by EMILY’s List, according to Capital New York. The event was part of the group’s “Madam President” series, which is organizing events around the country to promote interest in a female Democratic presidential candidate.

Hagan’s office did not return calls seeking comment. Clinton aides also did not respond to requests for comment.
