WASHINGTON (AP) — A Democratic fundraising powerhouse plans to honor Hillary Rodham Clinton next month as she deliberates over a potential 2016 presidential campaign.
EMILY's List, which works to elect Democratic women who support abortion rights, said Tuesday Clinton would appear at its 30th anniversary awards gala in Washington on March 3. The former secretary of state will receive the group's We Are EMILY Award to honor her leadership "as a fighter for women and families."
The political action committee has been among the Democratic groups laying the groundwork for a Clinton campaign, holding events promoting the potential of electing the nation's first female president. The group has also commissioned polling on U.S. interest in sending a woman to the White House.
Clinton is the leading Democratic contender for the White House.
