Washington Post: Independent groups allied with Hillary Clinton launching effort to mobilize female voters
“One of the top surrogates for Clinton will be former Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm, who just left the board of Priorities to serve as a senior adviser at Correct the Record, a super PAC that is coordinating directly with the Clinton campaign on rapid response.”

CNN: Opinion: Hillary Clinton revived U.S.’s global authority
“Diplomatically, without bluster or bullying, without stealing headlines or focusing on her own legacy, Hillary Clinton rebuilt the network of American relationships around the globe. This is certainly her most important legacy and fundamental to the future of American leadership in the world.”

New York Times: First Draft: Hillary Clinton Fires Back Against Jeb Bush on Rise of ISIS
“’I find it somewhat curious that Jeb Bush is doubling down on, defending his brother’s actions in Iraq,’ she said at a news conference set up outside a barn on the grounds of the Iowa State Fair. ‘If he’s going to do that, he should present the entire picture,’ which, she added, ‘includes the agreement George W. Bush made with the Maliki government in Iraq that set the end of 2011 as the date to withdraw American troops.’”

Associated Press: Front-runners Clinton, Trump descend on Iowa fair
“’Nice to be here!’ Clinton said as she started an hourlong stroll across the fairgrounds. Former Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin, who endorsed her this week and wore a straw hat to shade him from the blazing sun, accompanied her. Everywhere Clinton walked, large crowds followed her to get a photograph, a handshake or a quick hello.”

New York Times Opinion: Hillary Clinton’s Got This
“Many things are possible. But to this soothsayer, it feels like a good time to double down on that thesis instead, and make my prediction as firm and wiggle-free as possible: Hillary’s going to win the nomination, and it isn’t going to be particularly close.”

New York Times: First Draft: Jennifer Granholm, ex-Michigan Governor, Takes On New Role Supporting Hillary Clinton
“Ms. Granholm will join Correct the Record, the group created by the Clinton ally David Brock. That group is coordinating with the campaign, and her new role as its senior adviser means Ms. Granholm can act as a surrogate for Mrs. Clinton. … The campaign wanted her make such a move, according to one of the people briefed on the matter. Correct the Record has been trying to fill the gap in the number of surrogates, particularly women, it has to vouch for Mrs. Clinton in an increasingly contentious campaign.”

Buzzfeed: Clinton Casts Email Scandal, Benghazi As Sequel To “Hillary: The Movie”
“’But here’s what I won’t do. I won’t get down in the mud with them. I won’t play politics with national security,’ said Clinton. ‘I won’t pretend that this is anything other than what it is: the same old partisan games that we’ve seen so many times before.’”

Washington Post: Hillary Clinton rolls out plan to help college students who are parents
“[Clinton’s proposal] would increase funding for a Department of Education initiative that supports campus child care from $15 million to $250 million, according to the Clinton campaign. Combined with matching funds by states or institutions, the proposal would create 250,000 child-care spaces for student parents, the campaign said.”

TIME: Hillary Clinton Fires Back at Jeb Bush on Iraq Withdrawal
“‘[Jeb Bush] expects the American people to have a collective case of amnesia,’ Clinton said, in response to a question about the Middle East. She said she found Bush’s comments on Tuesday — that the ‘premature withdrawal’ from Iraq had been a ‘fatal error’ that paved the way for ISIS — ‘a little bit surprising.'”

Huffington Post: A Major Labor Union Just Endorsed Hillary Clinton…
“Tom Buffenbarger, IAM’s president, said in a statement that the union didn’t want to stay quiet while the fight is ‘so clearly underway.’ … ‘Hillary Clinton has been a strong supporter of this union for years and she is now the target of unprecedented attacks, financed on a scale never seen before,’ Buffenbarger said. ’The time to help is when help is needed most, and we intend to do just that.’”
