The 2016 presidential field is growing

WASHINGTON (CNN) – The road to the White House is getting more crowded with these announcements in just the past four weeks; Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Rand Paul, and Hillary Clinton.

Clinton is road-tripping towards her first campaign event Tuesday in Iowa, meeting people like a nineteen-year-old college student at a gas station along the way. Chris Learn, a Penn State student, said, “She was talking like a regular person, really, not like a political campaigner.”

Clinton aims for populism; republicans say its politics as usual. Ted Cruz tweeted, “Does America want a third Obama term?” While Jeb Bush said, “We must to do better than the Obama-Clinton foreign policy.”

Clinton is the first democrat to officially enter the field. Polls show her far ahead of other possible rivals.

The White House says it won’t weigh in on a favorite. Josh Earnest, White House Press Secretary, said, “The president has not offered up any sort of endorsement at this point.”

Sen. Marco Rubio said, “I hope you guys will be here tonight. It will be great.”

Rubio told donors on a Monday morning phone call he’s uniquely qualified to run for president.  He officially announce Monday night, bringing the formal list of candidates to four and counting.
