Hillary Clinton officially jumped back into politics Monday by launching her new PAC, Onward Together.
The 2016 Democratic presidential nominee and former secretary of state announced the news on Twitter and in a blast email to supporters pushing people to sign up.
“Resist, insist, persist, enlist,” says a message on the organization's homepage.
“Onward Together is dedicated to advancing the vision that earned nearly 66 million votes in the last election,” the PAC’s mission statement says. “By encouraging people to organize, get involved, and run for office, Onward Together will advance progressive values and work to build a brighter future for generations to come.”
The Republican National Committee fired back at Clinton with a statement of its own.
"The American people rejected Hillary Clinton six months ago because she's completely out-of-touch, untrustworthy, and embraced the failed policies of the past," RNC spokesman Michael Ahrens said. "If Democrats were smart, they’d realize it’s time to move onward from Hillary Clinton altogether.”
In her email, Clinton framed the group as a vehicle to "resist" unspecified opponents -- she did not name the Trump administration, but referenced protests against its policies.
