“Every day I wake up and play a brilliant, complex, overqualified, get-it-done woman, who obsessively fights for justice, who cares, who gives a voice to the voiceless, who gets knocked down and always gets back up,” the actresses say.

“I make television filled with the kinds of characters I imagine we all can be. Strong but flawed, human but extraordinary. Our characters are on television but the real world… The real world has Hillary Clinton,” they added.

The ad campaign video was directed by Tony Goldwyn, who plays the POTUS on "Scandal". Clinton took to Twitter to express her gratitude over support.

 

Recently, Clinton stopped by the "Scandal " set on while fund-raising in Los Angeles. During her visit, she took out time to pose for selfies with cast of the series including Kerry Washington, Tony Goldwyn, Scott Foley, Darby Stanchfield among others.
