Hillary Clinton Already Has a Super PAC Just in Case
Although the outgoing secretary of state declined a “60 Minutes” invitation to declare her intention to run in 2016, a pair of former Clinton fundraisers are already “ReadyForHillary,” as their aptly named super PAC would indicate.

ReadyForHillary launches a splash page next Monday at its website, ReadyForHillary.com. Allida Black and Judy Beck, two veteran Clinton fundraisers, are spearheading the new organization. They recruited Adam Parkhomeko, who helped launch a “Draft Hillary” movement in 2003 and was later hired by the campaign, to corral the far-flung vestiges of the Clinton campaign organization. NGP Software, which designed the Clinton campaign website in 2008, has been hired by the PAC.
Several former Clinton campaign staffers are offering input and suggestions. The PAC has no formal affiliation with Clinton or any of her top aides.
