Clinton’s in: A day after announcing her second bid for the White House, Hillary Clinton is literally on the road to Iowa today. After her announcement video was released yesterday, Clinton and a group of staffers hopped into a van and started driving to tiny Monticello, Iowa, where the campaign’s first event will be held tomorrow. The group stopped at a gas station in Pennsylvania, where Clinton talked to people and posed for pictures, which her campaign promptly posted on social media. On the GOP side of things, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s run for the White House begins this evening with a speech in Miami.

A new champ: A wire-to-wire, record-setting win at the Masters doesn’t make Jordan Spieth the next Tiger Woods, but he definitely is someone to keep an eye on in the golfing world.

He went into yesterday’s final round with a four-shot lead and at the 15th hole became the first player to reach 19 under par at the Masters. As for Woods, there was a lot of rust on his game, but he did manage to finish tied for 17th place.
