Three top Democratic fundraisers will lead the grass-roots effort to raise money for a super PAC urging Hillary Rodham Clinton to run for president in 2016.
San Francisco philanthropist Susie Tompkins Buell, co-founder of the Esprit clothing line, and Houston trial lawyers Steve and Amber Mostyn, who helped fund a super PAC that worked to re-elect President Barack Obama last year, signed on to Ready for Hillary on Tuesday, reports The Washington Post

"Ready for Hillary is the wisest investment right now for anyone who wants Hillary Clinton to be the next president," Buell said in a statement.
"Its founders are innovative and dedicated; they are building a massive grass-roots movement of Hillary supporters across all 50 states to show Hillary how ready the nation is for her to be president," she added.
Amber Mostyn said in a separate statement that the group plans to help organize "a grass-roots army for Hillary" to make her the first female president of the United States.
Among those already helping to raise funds for the McLean-based super PAC are Harold Ickes and James Carville, former advisers to Bill Clinton, and Ellen Malcolm, founder of Emily's List. The group has reportedly raised money so far from 3,000 donors.
