Morning Joe Panel: Hillary Could Lead Democratic Wave in 2016 (NewsBusters)

On the May 26 edition of Morning Joe, panelists Mike Allen, John Heilemann and Mark Halperin were all bullish about Hillary Clinton’s prospects for creating a wave that could carry down-ballot Democrats to their own election victories in 2016. 

The panel discussed an upcoming piece in Politico which highlighted increased interest from Democratic candidates in 2016, primarily due to Hillary. Allen happily noted that Democrats were using “the historic element of her candidacy and the higher turnout that you traditionally get in a presidential year” to help propel down-ballot candidates in House, Senate and state races.
