Hillary Rodham Clinton hasn't announced whether she will run for president in 2016, but her supporters in early voting Iowa are organizing anyway.

Top Iowa Democrats gathered Saturday in Des Moines to build support for a potential Clinton White House bid. Craig Smith, the national chairman of the Ready for Hillary super PAC, says he wants to ensure Iowa support is in place should Clinton run.

The event's hosts include the state chairs for Clinton's 2008 campaign and President Barack Obama's 2008 campaign.

Ready for Hillary is building a national network in preparation for a Clinton candidacy. Priorities USA announced Thursday it would back Clinton if she runs, a sign that senior members of Obama's campaign team are lining up behind the former first lady and secretary of state.
