Hillary Clinton Running for President: Hollywood Reacts
Lena Dunham and Chris Rock are among those who have tweeted about her Sunday campaign announcement.
Hillary Clinton's announcement Sunday that she is running for president may not have shocked many, but it still led to plenty of varying reactions on social media.
Clinton posted a video in which she declares her candidacy for the 2016 race by saying, "I'm running for president." She also confirmed the news on Twitter.
Several prominent political figures have weighed in, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R) and Sen. Rand Paul (R), both of whom have already declared that they are running as well.
Here are tweets from Hollywood notables and other key politicians.

Gotta say so far Hillary has the best logo. Time will tell as to substance. Very interested to see Rubio's announcement.— Montel Williams (@Montel_Williams) April 12, 2015
