  • A BRIDGE TO 2016: A super PAC has been raising money to support another Clinton presidential campaign, this one by Hillary Clinton, shown with family at the opening of the Clinton Library pedestrian bridge.

A super PAC dedicated to advancing the candidacy of Hillary Clinton for president in 2016 has been busy raising money, including in Arkansas last week, according to this report from CNN.

In the past four days, the super PAC has organized events in California and Arkansas and on Thursday, Ready for Hillary kicked off its Washington-area push with a low-dollar fundraiser at a swanky lounge on K Street, the hub of D.C. lobbying.

This is just the start, said Ready for Hillary organizers, who have planned "low-dollar, grassroots" events in California, North Carolina, New York and Pennsylvania, in addition to "organizational meetings and volunteer training" in Texas, Ohio, Maine, Arizona and Oregon.

...

On Monday, Howard Gordon, co-creator of "Homeland," and Paul Keisel, a trial attorney in Los Angeles, hosted respective meetings for the group around Los Angeles. A spokesman for the group described the events as "informational meetings" without a fundraising asking price.

That wasn't the case, however, at an event on Tuesday in Arkansas, where 30 people paid $1,000 to attend a fundraiser that included Archie Schaffer, a Tysons Foods executive closely affiliated with the Clinton family.
