Republicans pick approach to attack Hillary Clinton

Republicans who want to taint Hillary Clinton are going to lengths to link the former secretary of state with President Barack Obama and his sagging poll numbers.

Throughout the party's infrastructure, Republicans say that linking Clinton with Obama, especially labeling her possible 2016 campaign as "Obama's Third Term," is the most potent attack.

America Rising, an anti-Clinton super PAC that has looked to define the former first lady for the better part of a year, will push out a series of talking points giving Clinton the third-term label, and the group plans to fundraise off the push.

"Hillary Clinton has a Barack Obama problem," reads a lengthy research document that will go out to GOP pundits, strategists, conservative organizations and media members Tuesday. "No matter how many of her advisors whisper to reporters that she's different from Barack Obama, Americans still know who she is: Barack Obama Part Deux."

First on CNN: Republican group ties Clinton to Obama handling on Ukraine

Updated 2:57 p.m. ET 3/5/2014

Washington (CNN) – As Hillary Clinton made waves for her remarks about Russian incursions into Ukraine, a Republican super PAC sought to tie the former secretary of state to the Obama administration's handling of the unfolding crisis.

A 30-second web video by America Rising PAC stitches together public statements by then-Secretary of State Clinton and President Barack Obama on their attempted reset of U.S. relations with Russia. The video includes a 2009 meeting when Clinton famously presented Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov with a red "reset" button to signify the start of closer ties between the two superpowers.

Romney staffers reuniting to help anti-Hillary super PAC

Washington (CNN) – Some of the top members of Mitt Romney's two presidential campaigns are teaming up in the nation's capital next week for a reception and dinner designed to raise money for a new pro-GOP opposition research shop.

According to an invitation obtained by CNN, the July 23 event is being put together by Matt Rhodes, the Romney 2012 campaign manager who earlier this year was one of the founders of the America Rising PAC. The group's mission is to track and gather opposition research on leading Democrats in the 2014 and 2016 cycles. It recently was behind the startup of the Stop Hillary PAC, which was formed to attack Hillary Clinton, should she run for president in 2016.
