Before they even have a candidate, the folks at the Ready for Hillary super-political action committee are offering some swag for supporters. For a price.
The T-shirts, buttons and other merchandise come with a catch: All purchases are considered donations to the super-PAC formed to support former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton if she decides to seek the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016.
One T-shirt features a drawing of Clinton’s face over one word, “Ready.”
The shirt comes in gray or white. The same drawing appears on a campaign button and a tote bag. A baseball cap has an H with stylized stars and stripes, the logo of the super-PAC. Or you can get small round stickers to put over the home button on iPhones and other Apple products.
The store launched today with a special: Until the end of the month, all T-shirts carry a spoecial price of $20.16.
At the same time, an anti-Clinton super-PAC, Stop Hillary PAC, is trying to raise money to stop her candidacy. With its first fundraising deadline June 30, the PAC is seeking contributions of at least $25 to “stop Hillary in her tracks.”
The fundraising e-mail by Colorado state Senator Ted Harvey, a Republican and co-founder of the PAC, says a strong report is needed to show that “our movement is on fire.”
