Among the donors on the list released Wednesday by the super PAC, Ready for Hillary, are top Clinton adviser Harold Ickes ($2,500), top Clinton bundler Susie Tompkins Buell ($25,000) and Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen ($1,000).

Other notables include:

  • Former Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm ($500)
  • Celinda Lake, Democratic pollster who worked for Joe Biden in 2008 ($1,000)
  • Jerry Lundergan, the father of new Kentucky Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes ($25,000)
  • Ellen Tauscher, former California congresswoman and under secretary of state ($2,500)
  • Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers ($1,000)
  • James Zogby, president of the Arab American Institute ($1,000)

Another top Clinton adviser, James Carville, has sent a fundraising e-mail for the super PAC.

Ready for Hillary is limited donations to $25,000, even though it can accept unlimited donations as a super PAC. It raised $1.25 million in the first half of 2013, including $1 million in June.
