Ready for Hillary Readies Its Ground Forces

Ready for Hillary announced Wednesday that it is hiring four regional directors to coordinate its on-the-ground organizing activities across the country as it builds support for a potential Hillary Clinton presidential run.

"The regional organizing directors will engage supporters in Ready for Hillary's efforts and build an infrastructure of volunteers throughout their respective regions, while overseeing multiple high-priority programs to grow a massive list of Hillary supporters," the group said. "Moreover, the directors will mobilize supporters to channel the grassroots enthusiasm for a potential Hillary 2016 candidacy into efforts to help elect Democrats in this year's midterm elections."

 

Jessica Mejia, who served as state field director for Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign in Colorado, will manage organizing operations in the West.

To cover the South, Ready for Hillary has hired Hans Goff, who worked on the staff of Mark Warner and was an aide to Barack Obama's 2012 campaign. Goff is a senior associate at ASGK Public Strategies.

For the Midwest, Ready for Hillary has brought on Derek Eadon, the founder of Blueprint Strategies, a political consultancy, who also worked on both of Obama's presidential campaigns.

 

And for the Northeast, the group is hiring Sean Downey, the former executive director of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee, who has also worked on campaigns in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.

The group has expanded its grassroots organizing efforts dramatically since it started in early 2013, and is now hiring on-the-ground staff for the first time. The super PAC brought in $1.7 million in contributions in the first three months of this year, and has been holding numerous events around the country, including several with high-profile Democrats or celebrities to boost interest.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story misstated the amount of money Ready for Hillary raised this quarter. It was $1.7 million. An earlier version also misstated the city's mayor for whom Goff worked.
