A super PAC formed in hopes of backing Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren for a presidential run in 2016 is hiring organizers in several key primary states, including a deputy campaign manager and state coordinators for Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina.

Ready for Warren says in a job posting obtained by MSNBC that it is looking for a deputy campaign manager who can help run the super PAC's operations and work remotely either full or part time and who has "a commitment to drafting Elizabeth Warren and pushing for a progressive champion in the 2016 presidential race."

Meanwhile, the state coordinators would be part-time positions as the point person in the states, says Ready for Warren founder Erica Sagrans in the job posting, which was sent out to a group of progressive operatives and organizers.

But even with the expansion, the group remains dwarfed by the Ready for Hillary effort, which has had staff workers for months working toward a possible race by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

In addition, Warren has insisted repeatedly that she is not running for president in 2016. Further, in August she disavowed the Ready for Warren super PAC through her attorney, who wrote in a letter to the Federal Election Commission that she "has not, and does not, explicitly or implicitly, authorize, endorse, or otherwise approve of the organization's activities."

Warren's press secretary, Lacey Rose, also confirmed last month that "Senator Warren does not support this effort."

But Sagrans, confirming the job postings, told MSNBC that the group has "already seen a huge desire for a progressive champion like Warren to run in 2016, and this is the next step to build that into a grassroots campaign that's ready to get Warren's back if she decides to get in the race."

Warren enjoys a large following among liberal Democrats, reports The Hill, but Clinton leads in most polls as the clear frontrunner if she decides to run.

There are several other potential Democratic candidates, including Vice President Joe Biden, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, and former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb.
