Former presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton will be launching a political action committee (PAC), Axios reports. The PAC will seek to aide candidates for the 2018 midterm elections but, according to Axios, is reportedly not a mechanism for Clinton to run for office herself.
The goal of Clinton’s new organization will be to enable her “acting as a catalyst” for the enthusiasm within the Democratic Party that has sprouted since President Donald Trump won the White House in November.
Sources have told Axios that while Clinton will not go looking for avenues to criticize Trump, she will not back away when opportunities present themselves.
In speeches since the election, Clinton has not been afraid to attack the president. This week, she sat down with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, where she called herself “part of the resistance” and explained her thoughts on why she lost the election.
Clinton also spoke at Planned Parenthood’s 100-year anniversary gala this week. In addition to the PAC, Clinton is also returning to the paid-speaking circuit and is working on a book.
