Donors have a lot of insight into what the candidates will or will not do. But the 2016 campaign is so far away that anything at this point could just be a ploy to generate buzz and see what works.
According to a report by the Greek Reporter, Angelo Tsakopoulos, a close friend and top political donor to the Clintons confirmed that Hillary Clinton will seek the Democratic nomination in the next Presidential election.
“Hillary will be our next President and she will be a great one,” Tsakopoulos told the Greek Reporter at a private event in California this past weekend. When asked if it was confirmed, he replied, “I talk to her husband, and he confirmed it. She will run.”
The Greek Reporter states that Tsakopoulos’ daughter, Eleni Tsakopoulos-Kounalakis, who is the U.S. Ambassador to Hungary, was sworn into office in January 2010 by then- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
“My daughter will continue serving as an Ambassador for the next three months, and then she will return to the U.S. to help elect Hillary [as] President,” Tsakopoulos told the Greek Reporter.
The site said Hillary Clinton’s office did not respond for comment.
