Donna Shalala, former UW-Madison Chancellor, wins Democratic nomination in Florida

“It took me a while to answer the question of why do I want to do this, but as I got angrier and angrier at Washington, I said: ‘Donna, you’ve got to step up again and serve your community’,” Shalala told ABC News in March, when she announced her campaign.

It remains to be seen how her experience in Bill Clinton’s administration, and as president of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s foundation, will influence voters. In light of the #MeToo movement, which raised new conversations raised about Bill Clinton’s treatment of women, Shalala’s ties to the former president could prove a disadvantage.
