A group trying to prevent Hillary Clinton from becoming the next president has raised more than a half-million dollars and now has 250,000 supporters.

The Stop Hillary PAC has gained steam since it formed last summer, with its sole purpose being to keep Clinton out of the Oval Office.

"In leading the stop-Hillary effort, we are actively investing in identifying, recruiting, and signing up supporters to stop Hillary. To stop Hillary in 2016 we will be active this midterm election helping to defeat candidates she endorses, and shadow her wherever she goes," the group's national spokesman Garrett Marquis said in a National Journal report.

National Journal reports that other groups with the same purpose and goal exist, but the Stop Hillary PAC has cobbled together the most money so far.

The group's honorary chairman is Colorado state Sen. Ted Harvey, who worked as a White House staffer during the Reagan administration.

The main group that supports a Clinton presidential run in 2016, Ready for Hillary, has more than $5.75 million in the bank and 2 million supporters.

Clinton has not thrown her hat into the ring for the next election, saying only that she would make a decision by the end of 2014. She made no mention of the topic after accepting the Lincoln Award in Chicago on Saturday.

Several key Democrats have called for the former first lady and secretary of state to run, including Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine.

"She is a classic American optimist with the background and experiences necessary to lead this country in a very complicated world," Kaine said over the weekend.

Other Clinton supporters include Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York, former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, and Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri.
