Ready for Hillary goes hyperlocal in New Hampshire special election

Washington (CNN) – Ready for Hillary, a super PAC urging former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to run for president in 2016, is in New Hampshire on Tuesday, working to help influence a Granite State special election before voters go to the ballot box.

Although the move is unique for a national super PAC focused on the 2016 election, it could be considered an early investment that could later pay off in New Hampshire, which holds the first-in-the-nation presidential primary.

Court papers show Clinton adviser sought funds later used for illegal campaign

Washington (CNN) – A close adviser to Hillary Clinton courted and procured money that was later used to fund illegal get-out-the-vote operations during the former secretary of state’s hotly contested 2008 presidential bid, according to allegations formally laid out Monday by federal prosecutors.

The information became public as part of a plea agreement for Jeffrey Thompson, a Washington, D.C. businessman who on Monday pled guilty to conspiracy for masterminding a nearly $670,000 illegal "shadow campaign" for D.C. Mayor Vince Gray’s successful mayoral bid in 2010. But within the documents, Thompson told federal prosecutors that Clinton adviser Minyon Moore approached him to raise funds for the Clinton campaign that would end up amounting to more than $600,000.
