McCaskill First to Endorse Hillary for 2016
Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill has become the first sitting member of Congress to put her name behind the effort to recruit Hillary Clinton to run for president that is being spearheaded by the "Ready for Hillary" super PAC.

On Tuesday, Ready for Hillary released a statement saying that the Missouri senator is endorsing the movement to recruit the former first lady to run for president.

"Hillary Clinton had to give up her political operation while she was making us proud, representing us around the world as an incredible secretary of state, and that's why Ready for Hillary is so critical," McCaskill said according to the statement.

"It's important that we start early, building a grassroots army from the ground up, and effectively using the tools of the Internet — all things that President Obama did so successfully — so that if Hillary does decide to run, we'll be ready to help her win," McCaskill said.

In February, McCaskill said that if Clinton decided to run she would be "working my heart out" for her campaign, the St. Louis Beacon reported.
