Steve and Amber Mostyn have signed on as founding members of Ready for Hillary's national finance council. The two combined to donate more than $5 million to Democrats in the last election, including $3 million to the pro-Obama Priorities USA.
"Ready for Hillary is the wisest investment right now for anyone who wants Hillary Clinton to be the next president," Buell said in a statement provided by the group. "Its founders are innovative and dedicated; they are building a massive grassroots movement of Hillary supporters across all 50 states to show Hillary how ready the nation is for her to be president. It is powerful and essential work. It is building a movement of millions of Americans from the ground up. I am proud to join this team."
The group's announcement is the latest sign the group is getting key institutional support and could be a major player should Clinton decide to run for president. Others helping the group include former Clinton White House Political Director Craig Smith, former Rep. Ellen Tauscher (D-Calif.) and Harold Ickes, a senior adviser on Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential run. Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D) and EMILY's List founder Ellen Malcolm are also involved.
