HIllary Clinton supporters create super PAC for a potential 2016 campaign for president

ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — Some grass-roots supporters of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton have formed a super PAC to help a potential Clinton presidential campaign in 2016 — even though Clinton says she hasn't decided her plans.

A super PAC called "Ready for Hillary" was registered with the Federal Election Commission on Friday and the group plans to launch its website in the coming weeks.

It's chaired by the founder of the Eleanor Roosevelt Papers Project at George Washington University, Allida Black. As a super PAC, the group can't coordinate with a candidate.

Clinton was asked about a possible 2016 campaign today during a town hall meeting. She says she isn't thinking about that now and is looking forward to, in her words, "catching up on about 20 years of sleep deprivation."
