Decision 2016: More Candidates Throw Their Name in the Hat for President

KNWA via NBC — If you’re counting, we’re now 529 days away from voting for the next president. It’s still early, we’ve got more than a year to go, but the campaign trail is heating up, especially in battleground states. If you’re Hillary Clinton, and you lost South Carolina last time, here’s the strategy; hit the local bakery and slam republicans on the economy.

“Are we going to hand over our country once again to the people and policies that crashed our economy before?” said Hillary Clinton, (D) Presidential Candidate.

If you’re Carly Fiorina, polling at just one percent, a different strategy, show up outside Clinton’s speech and hit her weak points; foreign donations, emails and Benghazi.

“How can we trust Mrs. Clinton?” said Carly Fiorina, (R) Presidential Candidate.

Fiorina’s got company. Rick Santorum just announced he’s joining the crowded field of republican candidates. He also targeted Clinton.

“Working families don’t need another President tied to big government or big money,” said Rick Santorum, (R) Presidential Candidate.

In Chicago, Rand Paul took a totally different approach, going after republicans’ weak spot, the black vote.

“When I hear people say ‘black lives matter,’ I think of Freddie Gray. We’ve got some kind of thing going on in our country that we need to come to grips with,” said Senator Rand Paul, (R-KY) Presidential Candidate.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders also jumped in the race this week. The strategy for both sides seems to be target Clinton.
