Priorities USA Action, the country’s biggest liberal “Super PAC” is raising money to elect Hillary Clinton as President, although we still have no definitive word that Clinton is officially throwing her hat into the ring.
Priorities USA Action, had “played a pivotal role in helping re-elect President Obama.” They have “also named new directors to steer the organization, appointments that will both cement the group’s pro-Clinton tilt and thrust veterans of Mr. Obama’s political and fund-raising operation into the center of the post-Obama Democratic Party.”
The move marks perhaps the earliest-ever start to big-dollar fund-raising in support of a nonincumbent presidential candidate, providing a fund-raising portal for wealthy Clinton supporters eager to help her White House prospects — and to the legions of others eager to ingratiate themselves with Mrs. Clinton and her inner circle.
It is indeed interesting to see these early, more cohesive than usual actions by members of the Democratic Party to circling around to elect Hillary Clinton our next president.
Priorities USA Action is reported to be going after the big donors:
Unlike other pro-Clinton organizations, which have focused on recruiting small donors or building lists of grass-roots supporters, Priorities is seeking six- and seven-figure checks to power major advertising expenditures in support of Mrs. Clinton — including, if necessary, responses to attacks by Republicans and conservatives in advance of a formal campaign declaration. (Like all super PACs, the group would be barred from coordinating spending and strategy with Mrs. Clinton if she entered the presidential race.)
