Super PAC Ready for Hillary is bringing on four regional directors to its campaign machine, the National Journal reported.

The newly hired Democratic operatives will develop a volunteer base should Clinton decide to make a 2016 presidential run. They will also be used in the 2014 midterm elections to try to elect Democratic candidates, the group announced on its website.

Jessica Mejia, who worked on Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign, will manage operations in the West, including Hawaii. She will also rally support for Clinton among voters living abroad.

Hans Goff comes on board to organize the South. He worked in North Carolina on President Barack Obama's 2012 campaign and has extensive New Jersey political experience.

Derek Eadon, another Obama campaign veteran, joins as Midwest regional organizing director.

In the Northeast, the group has hired Obama campaign veteran Sean Downey who also served as the executive director of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee.

In the first three months of 2014, Ready for Hillary has raised more than $1.7 million in contributions amassing a war chest of $5.75 million.

The Super PAC has been hosting events around the country to generate buzz for a Clinton run for the White House.

The group is also emphasizing the income inequality issue. It put out a report entitled "Hillary Clinton: A Lifetime Champion of Income Opportunity," which credits Clinton with "raising the minimum wage," "advocating for out-of-work Americans" and "getting equal pay for equal work," according to CNN.

"Inequality of the kind that we are now experiencing is bad for individuals, bad for our economy, bad for our democracy," Clinton said during a recent speech in San Francisco.

"If people aren't being paid a decent wage with the opportunity for improvement in it, you dampen their ambition, you undermine the trust in our society and you limit their consumption, all of which is bad for us," CNN reported.
