Clinton requested money to pay for lawyers and activists to assist with the recount
Failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is staking a claim to the Florida Senate and gubernatorial recounts as she positions herself for a third try for White House.
Florida, a state which has a growing Democratic Hispanic population, is a low hanging fruit for Clinton and it looks she may see this as her chance.
According to a memo from Onward Together group, Clinton requested money to pay for lawyers and activists to assist with the recount.
The frantic e fundraising call on behalf of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, was her first call to action since her former aide said she will be jumping into 2020 Democratic primary.
It is expected to have at least 12 candidates.
Below is her memo to supporters:
Despite the tweeted complaints of Donald Trump and Rick Scott, the counting of ballots in Florida has continued. The final margin in the races for Senate is too close to call, and the Secretary of State has just ordered a recount.
We need to make sure that Senator Nelson’s team has everything they need for this process, and we cannot waste a moment. Make a donation to the DSCC’s voter protection efforts while they work to make sure every vote is counted.
What we’re seeing right now is unprecedented — this is the first a full statewide recount in Florida history. It’s unbelievable that any elected official wouldn’t call for a fair and accurate count of the votes.
The DSCC is currently deploying lawyers and organizers down to Florida to make sure that Senator Nelson has whatever legal support, staff capacity, and voter protection resources he needs to win this fight — and investing in their work is the best way you can have an impact.

Former adviser and a top Democrat in New York, Mark Penn, wrote in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece.
“Mrs. Clinton has come unbound. She will not allow this humiliating loss at the hands of an amateur to end the story of her career,” Penn and Stein wrote about Donald Trump, describing how Clinton would re-package herself as a more liberal “Hillary Clinton 4.0.”
“You can expect her to run for president once again. Maybe not at first, when the legions of Senate Democrats make their announcements, but definitely by the time the primaries are in full swing.”
