Ready for Hil­lary, the su­per PAC hop­ing to draft former Sec­ret­ary of State Hil­lary Clin­ton to run for pres­id­ent, is hir­ing at least four re­gion­al dir­ect­ors, its ex­ec­ut­ive dir­ect­or said at an event for the group Tues­day night.

The group has already hired one staffer to or­gan­ize op­er­a­tions in the South, and is cur­rently look­ing to hire at least three more or­gan­izers to cov­er the North­east, the Mid­w­est, and the South­w­est, Adam Park­ho­men­ko, who foun­ded and runs the group, con­firmed.

The staffers will work “on the ground train­ing vo­lun­teers to help grow our grass­roots army for 2016 and help Demo­crat­ic ef­forts in 2014,” said Com­mu­nic­a­tion Dir­ect­or Seth Bring­man.

While plans haven’t fully so­lid­i­fied, Park­ho­men­ko said the staffers will be based in ma­jor cit­ies in the four re­gions, with the group eye­ing cit­ies like Bo­ston, Chica­go, and Phoenix. Al­tern­at­ively, they may di­vide the coun­try in­to five re­gions and hire an ex­tra dir­ect­or. 

It would be the first staff hires for the group out­side of the Wash­ing­ton, D.C. area, where the su­per PAC has of­fices just across the river from the cap­it­al, in Ar­ling­ton, Vir­gin­ia.

The event in Wash­ing­ton was to build sup­port for a pos­sible Clin­ton bid among Nat­ive Amer­ic­an lead­ers. Ready for Hil­lary reg­u­larly holds events reach­ing out vari­ous con­sist­en­cies, such as LGBT voters. Oth­er up­com­ing events this month in­clude a fun­draiser in New York fea­tur­ing Rep. Car­o­lyn Malo­ney, and an­oth­er in Ohio with Rep. Tim Ry­an.
