Clinton to launch White House bid on Sunday: media

Hillary Clinton is poised to officially launch her 2016 presidential campaign this weekend, setting the stage for a bruising election battle as she bids to become the first woman elected to the White House. Several US media reports citing sources in Clinton’s campaign team said the 67-year-old was likely to announce her candidacy for the Democratic nomination on Sunday. The former first lady is expected to be the clear Democratic frontrunner in the race to succeed Barack Obama, who pipped her for the nomination in a protracted battle in 2008. Clinton is expected to announce her candidacy via social media and a video message, several reports said, followed by a low-key campaign swing through key state Iowa.
