“George Soros is delighted to join more than one million Americans in supporting Ready for Hillary,” said Michael Vachon, Soros’s political director, in a statement. “His support for Ready for Hillary is an extension of his long-held belief in the power of grassroots organizing.”

Soros will co-chair the PAC's national finance council, which is unaffiliated with Hillary Clinton but is working to persuade the former First Lady into running for president.

The group confirmed the news on Twitter Thursday:

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
