Fans of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have launched a super PAC on her behalf as speculation continues to swirl about her 2016 ambitions.
"Ready for Hillary" on Friday filed with the Federal Election Commission, following on the heels of another group called "HILLARYCLINTONSUPERPAC."
Allida Black, who is chairing the Ready for Hillary PAC, told the Center for Public Integrity in a piece posted on Monday that the group is "'a small group of skilled and dedicated Hillary supporters and Obama supporters' who are ready to devote their 'organizational expertise and energy to helping Hillary become president.'"
"Our purpose is simple: we are ready to work for Hillary to be president when she is ready to run," Black, a George Washington University professor and historian, as well as a longtime Clinton backer, said to the Center for Public Integrity in an email. "When our website launches in a few weeks, we plan to reach out to our grassroots networks and contributors to mobilize them to support her."
The organization's Twitter account already sports nearly 50,000 followers.
