Hillary Clinton will officially launch her 2016 presidential campaign during a "major speech" in New York City on June 13, her campaign announced Monday.

 

The event will take place at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park in Manhattan on Saturday, June 13.

“Throughout her career, Hillary Clinton has been inspired by FDR’s belief that America is stronger when we summon the work and talents of all Americans and has long admired Eleanor Roosevelt as a role model,” a campaign spokesperson said in a statement.

The launch will kick-off a five-day swing through the four early voting states – Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada. On Saturday evening following the launch, Clinton will hold an organizing meeting in Iowa with volunteers and supporters to plan a “ground-up, grassroots-focused organization.”

The meeting will be simulcast at various planning meetings around the country, with nearly every congressional district holding a similar event, according to the campaign.
