“I just want to make an announcement here for you, John, on CNN tonight,” she told CNN’s John King, who was moderating the debate. “I filed today my paperwork to seek the office of the presidency of the United States. … And I very soon will be making my formal announcement. So, I wanted you to be the first to know.”
