The Ready for Hillary super PAC has spent close to $5 million since it was formed last year, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics obtained by The Washington Post.

Hillary Clinton, who’s been busy promoting her memoirs "Hard Choices," has still not announced whether she is running for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016.

With the election still more than two years away, the political action committee forked out $1.5 million during the first three months of this year while raising $1.7 million in the same period, according to the group's Federal Election Commission report filed on April 15 and reviewed by the Post.

The report said that Ready for Hillary has spent more than $700,000 on wages since launching in April 2013, and currently has 26 staff members.

The former secretary of state, who was beaten by Barack Obama in her 2008 bid for the Democratic presidential nomination, has suggested that she doesn’t plan to make an announcement whether she will run before the midterm elections in November.

That hasn’t stopped Ready for Hillary from "spending money like crazy," according to the Post.

But Seth Bringman, the group’s communications director, pointed out that the expenditures will be well worth it if Ready for Hillary can amass a huge database of email addresses for fundraising purposes to help its potential candidate.

"If she decides to run," he says, "Hillary will start the 2016 campaign with a larger database of email addresses and supporter information than she ended with in the 2008 campaign."
