Former secretary of state, first lady, inventor of “No Child Left Behind” and now presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton has received the endorsement of two of the most notorious groups in America.
Planned Parenthood came out early and, for the first time in 100 years, endorsed a presidential candidate before the primaries.
The group’s political arm plans to spend $20 million in the 2016 race.
The endorsement has not been well-received by Planned Parenthood’s supporters:

@PPact No, you should have remained neutral and allow the people that support you to make their decisions without you campaigning for her.

Near the announcement of Planned Parenthood’s endorsement of Hillary, the gun control group, The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, announced their support for Clinton.
“Hillary Clinton has been a national leader on gun violence prevention for decades. More than any candidate on either side of the aisle, she has the experience, record, and demonstrated commitment to help reach the Brady Campaign’s goal of cutting gun deaths in half by 2025,” Brady Campaign President Dan Gross stated.
Hillary was also endorsed by gun control advocate and former congresswoman from Arizona Gabby Giffords.
Monica Lewinsky’s nemesis has been focused racking up support from gun control advocates over the last several weeks.
The move signals that the 2nd Amendment will be the top issue throughout 2016.
