Hillary Clinton is still likely several months away from making a presidential announcement, but she just added a slew of endorsements to her non-campaign.
Ready for Hillary, the super PAC that has been laying the groundwork for a Clinton bid since early 2013, will host an Asian-American and Pacific Islander fundraiser in Washington Tuesday featuring almost a dozen Asian-American Democrats in Congress. The event is part of the super PAC’s efforts to build a grassroots list of Clinton supporters, while also getting Democratic officials and officeholders to publicly commit to Clinton.
Neera Tanden, Clinton’s top policy adviser during her 2008 presidential campaign and the current president of the Center for American Progress, is a featured speaker.
Honorary chairs include Sen. Mazie Hirono and 10 members of the House: Reps. Mike Honda, Doris Matsui, Judy Chu, Ami Bera, Madeleine Bordallo, Tammy Duckworth, Ted Lieu, Grace Meng, Mark Takai, and Mark Takano.
Other hosts of the event include Democratic policy experts, like Obama White House economic adviser Ginger Lew, former Clinton White House adviser Irene Bueno, and Third Way national security director Mieke Eoyang.
Tickets go for the group’s signature $20.16 price, and range up to $500 for chairs, according to an invitation.
Clinton, who spoke in Canada Wednesday night, is expected to announce her presidential ambitions in late spring.
