Hillary Clinton announced on Sunday that she will make another run for presidency. The announcement came at the end of a short video. Clinton is likely to be the main democratic nominee for the presidential election, but there will probably be many more presidential run announcements in the next few months.

“We need to build the economy of tomorrow, not yesterday,” Clinton stated in a tweet on April 14.

Clinton has so far had a focus more towards the economy, gender equality, and has supported for gay marriage. Her economic policy includes a bankruptcy reform.

Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio are the leading candidates for the Republican Party. Cruz announced his run for presidency on Twitter. Paul announced his run on his website, and Rubio announced his run in a call to donors.

“We need a new track,” Cruz said, according to a tweet on April 14. “We need to get back to the principles that made America strong.”

Ted Cruz historically has supported a balanced budget amendment, and has been against gay marriage.

Marco Rubio on his twitter has also stated, “The final verdict on our generation will be written by Americans not yet born. Let us make sure they record that we made the right choice.”

Marco Rubio has also supported a balanced budget amendment. He’s also supported a lower corporate tax rate. It is most likely that the presidential candidates will focus on the hot topic of the economy, and many more statements are sure to come from all present and future candidates. Many high school students will soon be able to vote in the 2016 election.
