Washington (CNN) - They have some money. They just don't have a candidate.
Hillary Clinton may still be a long way away from making any decisions on whether she'll run again for the White House, but regardless, an independent group that's encouraging her run for president in 2016 is touting its fundraising.
The Ready for Hillary super PAC will report Wednesday that it raised $1.25 million over the past three months, an official with the group confirms to CNN, adding that $1 million of their haul was raised in June alone.
More than nine thousand people donated to the PAC, with three-quarters of those contributions being $25 or less, according to the Ready for Hillary official, who asked to remain anonymous to speak more freely.
The PAC has said they won't accept donations higher than $25,000, in order to send a message that the number of contributors is more important right now than the amount of money raised.
Last month some leading Democratic donors pow-wowed at two get-togethers in New York City with some top Clinton allies to discuss funding for the PAC. Harold Ickes, who's now advising Ready for Hillary, made a pitch to potential donors.
According to sources at the meetings, Ickes said that it was important to invest in the organization early as a means to put Hillary in the strongest position possible should she decide to run for president. Ickes is a longtime friend and adviser to the former secretary of state, 2008 Democratic presidential candidate, U.S. senator from New York, and first lady, attended those meetings.
While Clinton may be at least a year away from making any decision on 2016, groups like Ready for Hillary are not sitting still. Clinton supporters and former aides formed the organization at the beginning of the year, and now say some 535,000 are signed up as supporters.
While guarded at first, some top names from Bill and Hillary Land, such James Carville, a former top political adviser to former President Bill Clinton, have now embraced the PAC.
Even more telling, two former aides to President Barack Obama's own successful White House campaigns are now helping the PAC. Earlier this month Ready for Hillary announced that they had partnered with 270 Strategies, a consulting firm run by Mitch Stewart, the director of battleground state strategy for Obama's 2012 campaign, and Jeremy Bird, who was Obama's national field director in last year's contest.
While Ready for Hillary continues to grow, two pro-Republican groups recently formed to attack Clinton and hopefully influence the big political decision she will eventually make.
One of the two groups, the Stop Hillary PAC, last week released a web video that imagines a second Clinton presidency, in hopes of stoking fears among Republicans nationwide.
Besides Stop Hillary PAC, there's also StopHillary2016, a separate effort launched last month by America Rising, the recently formed opposition research group headed by Matt Rhoades, the campaign manager for Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential effort, and by a pair of former Republican National Committee officials.
Even though the next race for the White House is a long way away, there's already intense speculation over whether Clinton will make a second bid for president.
When asked just before she stepped down as secretary of state whether she was thinking of making another run for the White House, Clinton said "I am not thinking about anything like that right now."
Asked in an interview with CNN later that day if she had decided against another candidacy for president, Clinton responded that, "I have absolutely no plans to run."
But she added that, "I am lucky because I've been very healthy. I feel great. I've got enormous amounts of energy that have to be harnessed and focused, so I'm very fortunate. I'm looking forward to this next chapter in my life, whatever it is.
And the profile on her new Twitter account, which was unveiled in early June, listed her future as "TBD," which only fueled speculation she's not finished with presidential politics.
If Clinton does run for the White House, public opinion polls indicated she would instantly become the overwhelming front runner for the Democratic nomination.
