Ready For Hillary, a super PAC dedicated to supporting a potential presidential bid by Hillary Clinton, announced two new staff appointments Tuesday.

Amy Drummond will be the group’s data director focused on “ensur(ing) high-quality information about current and prospective supporters who can be activated the moment Hillary makes a decision,” according to a press release issued by the group. Neisha Blandin will be grassroots fundraising director, a position the group said was created “following widespread interest of supporters wishing to host $20.16-per-ticket fundraising events.”

Drummond was previously a lead analyst at the New Organizing Institute. Blandin has worked as a fundraiser for numerous politicians, including Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY).

A report published Monday by Politico said that, after some friction with the pro-Clinton super PAC Priorities USA, Ready For Hillary agreed to “focus on collecting and analyzing voter data, accepting donations up to $25,000.”
