Hillary Clinton To Decide On 2016 Run By Jan 1

Posted: Sep 07, 2014 4:40 PM

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has long been considered one of the front runners for the 2016 election, despite never declaring whether or not she was actually intending on running for president. The will-she-or-wouldn't-she speculation may soon be over, however, as Clinton has reportedly given herself until January 1 to decide if a presidential run is in the cards.

"I am going to be making a decision...probably after the first of the year about whether I'm going to run again or not,'' she said at an event in Mexico City, according to Reuters.

Clinton is in Mexico for a charity-related event hosted by billionaire Carlos Slim.

Clinton previously announced her intent to run for president in late January of 2007.
