One group has looked askance at a pres­i­den­tial bid by Hil­lary Rod­ham Clin­ton for al­most a year. And they’re still not ready for Hil­lary. In­deed, the Stop Hil­lary PAC is ap­proach­ing its first an­niver­sary and re­ports a few num­bers that sug­gest the public is un­nerved as well. The “Stop Hil­lary” clan now claims 827,000 sup­port­ers and has raised $1.4 mil­lion for their cause. The or­ga­niz­ers have been frank about their mission since found­ing the group last May — and they have a sin­gle fo­cus to pre­vent Mrs. Clin­ton from reach­ing the White House.

“Make sure Hil­lary Clin­ton never be­comes pres­i­dent. Amer­ica can’t sur­vive an­other term of Obama-era rad­i­cal lib­er­al­ist poli­cies im­ple­mented by a Bill and Hil­lary Clin­ton team back in the White House. In 2016, it will be too late to stop Hil­lary. We’ve got to hold her accountable right now,” the po­lit­i­cal ac­tion com­mit­tee says in its en­thu­si­as­tic public pitch.

“Stop Hil­lary PAC’s suc­cess at rais­ing the nec­es­sary funds and build­ing an ef­fec­tive and ag­gres­sive grass-roots ef­fort will keep the Clin­tons out of the White House,” says chair­man Ted Har­vey. “Our mo­men­tum is a tes­ta­ment to the grow­ing num­ber of Amer­i­cans who want a leader in the White House that they can trust.”

He cites the per­sis­tent “big three” is­sues that could im­pede Mrs. Clin­ton’s quest for of­fice.

“Be­tween ‘server­gate,’ the shady for­eign dona­tions her foun­da­tion re­ceived and her dis­as­trous ten­ure at the State Depart­ment, Hil­lary’s proved she’s not a trusted nor trans­par­ent leader,” says Mr. Har­vey. “Our or­ga­ni­za­tion and sup­port­ers will con­tinue to tell the tough truths Hil­lary and her han­dlers wish to evade.”

Just in time for the up­com­ing White House Cor­re­spon­dents’ Din­ner, it’s “Nerd Prom,” a fea­ture-length doc­u­men­tary about the big event by jour­nal­ist Pa­trick Gavin.
