Things are different this time around as Hillary Clinton makes another bid for the presidency, with the former secretary of state focusing on fighting for "everyday Americans," a senior advisor for the Ready for Hillary political action committee said Monday.
However, that apparently doesn't include many people from the New York or Washington, D.C., area.
During an interview on CNBC's "Closing Bell," Tracy Sefl said "it's probably not you," when asked by a Wall Street strategist for the definition of an everyday American.
"It's probably not a lot of people in sort of the D.C.-New York world. I hope that it's people like in my home state of Iowa. People who don't follow this minute by minute but have really serious concerns about their bank accounts, their jobs, their kids."
When questioned whether that meant Clinton didn't care about voters in the Northeast, Sefl responded, "That's not what I said. … I think everyday Americans are a big coalition."

The former secretary of state, U.S. senator and first lady formally announced her candidacy on Sunday. On the Republican side, Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Rand Paul as well as Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida have also thrown their hats into the ring for the 2016 election.
This is Clinton's second attempt to win the White House, losing the 2008 Democratic nomination to future President Barack Obama. However, Sefl said, "a lot is different since last time."
"The world has changed in dramatic ways, and it seems that she's really grown as a candidate and as a leader. Her experience as secretary of state is certainly bolstering all that she brings to the table," she said.
Some, however, believe Clinton's tenure as secretary of state is more of a liability. Critics, including Paul, have questioned her ability to serve as commander in chief because of her role in the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya.

As for those who may not want another Bush or Clinton in the White House, Sefl said Clinton's last name is not what matters.
"It's about those families that she's going to be meeting with and talking to and hearing what their concerns are. I think that transcends any sort of surname," she said.
