AP source: Hillary Clinton group raises $1 million

July 30, 2013

BOSTON (AP) — A group that wants Hillary Rodham Clinton to run for U.S. president in 2016 says it raised more than $1 million in June alone.

Clinton, the former first lady and former secretary of state under President Barack Obama, has not said whether she’ll run.

But the Ready for Hillary group has accepted donations exceeding $1.25 million since beginning to raise money in earnest this spring, an official with the group confirmed Tuesday. The official wasn’t authorized to discuss by name the contents of the financial report ahead of its release on Wednesday and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Clinton is not formally connected to the group, which can raise and spend unlimited amounts of money. She has been making public appearances and working on a book since leaving the State Department in February.

She ran for president before the 2008 election.
