IT'S STARTING!: Clinton backers launch 'Ready for Hillary' Super PAC in hopes of 2016 campaign

A group of Hillary Clinton supporters is launching a campaign to draft her to run for president — the first major push from an outside group for her to run.
The group, “Ready for Hillary,” filed as a super-PAC with the Federal Election Commission late last week and plans to roll out a website in the coming weeks.
It has already been active online, with nearly 50,000 Twitter followers and almost 30,000 people following the group on Facebook.
The effort is being spearheaded by Allida Black and Judy Beck, two longtime Clinton supporters who were on Clinton’s Virginia Women’s Steering Committee in 2008 and helped her raise more than $100,000.
