"Ready for Hillary" SuperPAC first Chicago event on May 29

SHARE "Ready for Hillary" SuperPAC first Chicago event on May 29

WASHINGTON–The Ready for Hillary SuperPac, a group cranking up for a 2016 Hillary Rodham Clinton presidential bid, is having its first event in Chicago on May 29, with save the date emails sent out on Monday morning. Clinton, born in Chicago and raised in Park Ridge, has always been popular in Chicago, even when she ran against Barack Obama in the 2008 Democratic White House primary and most Democrats in Illinois sided with Obama. But it was nothing personal and this combined fundraiser/organizing event for the SuperPAC, launched in 2013–and not authorized by Clinton– should be an easy sell. The “time and venue” is to be determined. “Join over 2 million supporters to send Hillary a message that we are ready for her to run for president in 2016,” the invite said. The event co-chairs are David Anderson, the CEO of School Loan 411 and Natalya Wallin, a graduate student at the University of Chicago with the rest of the host committee still in formation. The price points (based on the 2016 election year)*$ 20.16 single ticket*$ 201.60 to host or bring 10 guests * $500.00 to co-chair.
