Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will announce her presidential candidacy in April, the Wall Street Journal reported Sunday evening.

The newspaper reported that Clinton and her advisers are telling Democratic donors she will enter the presidential race sooner than expected in order to ease uncertainties in the party.

The Journal reported that longtime Clinton confidante John Podesta is expected to play a major role in her campaign. Podesta stepped down from his post as an Obama White House adviser in January ahead of her anticipated run.

Clinton had previously said she would announce her intentions in the summer, but an earlier announcement will allow the potential Democratic field to take shape. Some candidates have been waiting for Clinton to make the announcement official.
