The Democratic super PAC positioning itself to be the big-money advertising vehicle to back Hillary Rodham Clinton if she runs in 2016 announced a new board Thursday with strong ties to both labor and corporate interests.

Priorities USA Action, which backed President Obama’s reelection in 2012, is reconfiguring itself as a pro-Clinton group in advance of the next White House race. Obama’s former campaign manager, Jim Messina, and former Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm will serve as co-chairs, the super PAC announced Thursday.
