Hillary Clinton embarks on busy three-state swing​

Washington (CNN) – Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton heads to the West Coast this week for a string of paid speaking engagements in California, Nevada and Oregon.

CNN was first to report the trip back in January, when it was announced that Clinton – the favorite to win the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016 – would keynote a marketing event in San Francisco, headline a speaking tour in San Jose and talk health care with a group in San Diego.

Ethics key in tight D.C. mayoral primary race

Washington (CNN) – The race to become the Democratic nominee for mayor of Washington, D.C. – a contest that was once defined by a crowded, fractured field – has become a head-to-head competition between incumbent Mayor Vince Gray and Muriel Bowser, a D.C. councilmember.

As voters head to the polls on Tuesday, Bowser has become the most likely challenger to unseat Gray, who a majority of voters believe knew of an illegal shadow campaign that helped him win the mayor's office in 2010.

Ready for Hillary goes hyperlocal in New Hampshire special election

Washington (CNN) – Ready for Hillary, a super PAC urging former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to run for president in 2016, is in New Hampshire on Tuesday, working to help influence a Granite State special election before voters go to the ballot box.

Although the move is unique for a national super PAC focused on the 2016 election, it could be considered an early investment that could later pay off in New Hampshire, which holds the first-in-the-nation presidential primary.
