Ready for Hillary, the super political action committee preparing for a potential second White House bid by the former Secretary of State, will report raising more than $1 million since the group formed this spring.

The figure, confirmed by a person familiar with it, was reported earlier by the New York Times.

The organization is expected to file its first disclosure report with the Federal Election Commission tomorrow. The group has said it has capped donations at $25,000 per person in an effort to give the effort more grass-roots credibility.

The report will show the group raised $1.25 million, including $1 million in the month of June alone. The money came from more than 9,300 donors and three-quarters of the donations were for $25 or less, the person said.

Clinton has said she has no plans for a second presidential run. She also hasn’t ruled it out. Her body language will be closely watched by the political community in the months, and years, ahead for any signal that she’s approaching a decision.

A survey released earlier this month of American voters by Hamden, Connecticut-based Quinnipiac University showed Clinton dominating in match-ups against hypothetical Republican presidential opponents.

The poll showed Clinton leading New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie by 46-40 percent, and Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky by 50-38 percent. The survey of 2,014 registered voters was conducted June 28-July 8 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.2 percentage points.
