Supporters of Hillary Clinton's widely-anticipated presidential campaign launch make their voices heard in New York. They're undaunted by the row over her use of personal email for work when she was America's top diplomat. (SOUNDBITE)(English) CAROLYN MALONEY, U.S. CONGRESSWOMAN, SAYING: "She's a grandmother, a wife, a mother, she knows the problems around the peace table, the international table, the kitchen table of Americans and has a track record of coming up with solutions." (SOUNDBITE)(English) MARTIN FORREST SMITH, FILM-MAKER, SAYING: "I'm kind of one of those people who's always keeping an open mind but I supported her at the beginning of her campaign eight years ago until Barack Obama came in because I like what she stood for." (SOUNDBITE)(English) BONNIE HELLER, HILLARY CLINTON SUPPORTER, SAYING: "We all have several email accounts that we use intermittently and I think it's just another ploy by the Republicans to shatter her momentum." Clinton's Republican political opponents really haven't wasted any time pushing the email controversy to the fore. They launched this commercial on Friday. Clinton was due to announce her intention to seek the Democratic presidential nomination through video and social media on Sunday.
