Brooklyn, New York—To the surprise of very few, Hillary Clinton announced her 2016 presidential campaign on April 12, with a video and social media postings. Wasting no time, opponents plastered anti-Hillary posters near her campaign headquarters. Republican presidential candidates Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio also took jabs at the sole Democrat currently in the race, claiming she was out of touch and would be the equivalent of a third term for Barack Obama. Republican leadership questioned her record as secretary of state, especially her handling of the 2012 attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, and the controversy over her use of private email for official communications. slideshow
