Kempner sets sights on Hillary 2016

After successfully aiding President Obama’s bid for re-election last year, Michael Kempner has set his sights on Hillary Clinton’s potential 2016 run for office.

Kempner, the CEO of MWW Public Affairs who served on Obama’s national finance committee, hosted a breakfast this morning in New York to tout Ready for Hillary, a PAC dedicated to raising money should the former Secretary of State and 2008 Democratic Presidential candidate decide she’s ready to take another shot.

The 25 or so attendees at the breakfast included both Obama and Clinton supporters from New York and New Jersey.  The group heard from longtime Clinton friend and advisor Harold Ickes on the importance of the PAC in positioning Clinton for the run.

Clinton has not yet said if she will mount another bid for the presidency, but her name is consistently at the top of polls looking at the next Democratic nominee.

The breakfast was first reported by the New York Times.
