The contributions came from more than 33,000 donors, the grassroots group said in a press release, with around 25,000 contributors donating in the second half of 2013 alone.
“Thanks to the groundswell of enthusiasm for Hillary’s potential run and the steadfast commitment of our supporters, we have exceeded our goals and are ahead of schedule in raising the funds necessary to build a grassroots army that can be activated the moment Hillary makes a decision,” Ready For Hillary's executive director, Adam Parkhomenko, said in the release. “This movement is unprecedented – not because of our staff but because of our supporters – and we will continue to build capacity across the country to put Hillary in the strongest position possible should she decide to run.”
Ready For Hillary announced earlier Tuesday that it was staffing up for further grassroots outreach. The super PAC drew attention to the number of small donors that contributed last year in its fundraising announcement, touting an average contribution of $82.
