Clinton Forms "Students for Hillary"

From The Clinton Campaign:

The Clinton campaign today announced the launch of Students for Hillary, a national effort to organize and mobilize supporters on college campuses. Supporters have already started 120 Students for Hillary chapters in 37 states and the campaign expects many more to begin in the coming weeks. The campaign also unveiled a new Web site,, which will serve as the principal organizing tool for students and other young voters. Hillary Clinton kicked off the Students for Hillary initiative at events at her alma mater, Wellesley College, and at the University of New Hampshire (UNH) and encouraged students to become active in her campaign.

"In the coming weeks, I need you to make the calls and knock on the doors and organize events," said Clinton. "That's exactly what I did back in 1968, driving from Wellesley to Manchester, New Hampshire, stuffing envelopes and walking precincts for Eugene McCarthy's Presidential campaign. And I'm so grateful that so many of you here are doing that for me today."

***UPDATE: The Clinton campaign also released a list of 352 Student Leaders for Hillary from 10 New Hampshire colleges and universities.
