Meanwhile, the Republican National Committee issued a statement in response to Hillary’s presidential campaign kick-off.
“Republicans have a strong and diverse set of candidates who will engage in a productive debate on how to move our country forward. Clinton’s coronation represents more of the same, and voters have made it clear they want a new direction,” the official statement from RNC chairman Reince Priebus read in part.
"When you ask about the importance of having a woman president, absolutely it's important, for, yes, symbolic reasons — symbols are important; it is important who and what we choose to elevate, and to celebrate," she said. "And one of our core values in this country is that we are the land of equal opportunity, but when equal hasn't yet included gender, there is a fundamental challenge there that, I believe, having our first woman president — whenever that is—will help resolve."
