Hillary Clinton's super PAC has raised over $4 million from some 33,000 donors in mostly small contributions, according to Politico.

The former New York senator and Obama administration secretary of state said she would decide later this year whether to seek the presidency in 2016, CNN reported.

Adam Parkhomenko, executive director of the Ready for Hillary super PAC said that "thanks to the groundswell of enthusiasm for Hillary's potential run . . . we have exceeded our goals and are ahead of schedule in raising the funds necessary to build a grassroots army that can be activated the moment Hillary makes a decision," Politico reported.

A statement put out by the super PAC said: "Ready for Hillary believes it has more contributors than all other presidential super PACs ever, combined. Contributions ranged from $1 to the group's voluntary maximum contribution of $25,000, with an average contribution of $82. Ninety-eight percent of contributions were $100 or less."

The co-chair of the national finance council for Ready for Hillary is billionaire liberal activist George Soros. He and other council members, who include Texas lawyers Steve and Amber Mostyn and Esprit clothing co-founder Susie Tompkins Buell, have committed to contributing or raising at least $25,000.

Political operatives long associated with Clinton are presently soliciting support for her presidential prospects among political and union leaders in New Hampshire and Iowa, Politico reported.

Clinton's book about foreign policy decision making is due out in 2014, CNN reported.

Meanwhile, Ready for Hillary announced the hiring of Amy Drummond as its Data Director and Neisha Blandin as Grassroots Fundraising Director. Drummond previously worked for the New Organizing Institute, an offshoot of the Soros-supported MoveOn.org.
