First, the big breaking news.
A lease has been signed for office space in Brooklyn that is expected to be the headquarters of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, sources familiar with the matter confirmed to MSNBC Friday morning. The move signals that a campaign launch is likely imminent.
Under federal election rules, candidates have just 15 days to declare a presidential run after engaging in campaign activity, like renting office space, though it’s unclear when Clinton signed the lease. It’s also unclear who or what legal entity signed the document.
The campaign will take up two floors of 1 Pierrepont Plaza in Brooklyn Heights, which is described on its website as “Modern Offices. Brooklyn Cool.”
Some exciting and historic times are only days away.
