Female Democratic senators want Hillary Clinton to run for president

Sources told ABC News exclusively that the 16 senators signed the letter early this year.

The letter was organized at the urging of Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif. Her office declined to comment directly, but said Boxer agrees that Clinton should run.

Clinton has said she would not make up her mind on whether to run for president until next year.
