Palazzo: Clinton has "questions to answer" if she enters presidential race

CAMP SHELBY, MS (WDAM) - Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is expected to officially launch her 2016 presidential campaign Sunday by posting a video message on social media. That's according to sources close to her staff.  

Congressman Steven Palazzo says if Clinton does run, she'll need to clear up a lot of details about her past. 

"She's got a lot of questions to answer to the American people," he said.  

Palazzo (R-4th Dist.) was at Camp Shelby Saturday to attend two formal ceremonies.  

"She talks about like she's putting millions of miles on her private jet when she was Secretary of State, but what has she accomplished when she was traveling around the world basically on taxpayer vacations," said Palazzo. "It doesn't look like she's improved or strengthened any relationships. In fact, our friends don't trust us. We've lost a lot of credibility in this nation under (John) Kerry's leadership as Secretary of State, under Clinton's leadership and especially (President Obama) and his administration," he said. 

Saturday, a group called "Ready for Hillary" hosted a final rally in New York.  In the last two years, they've held more than 1,300 events and raised about $13 million.
