DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton hasn't announced whether she will run for president in 2016, but her supporters in the early voting state of Iowa are getting organized anyway.

Top Iowa Democrats gathered Saturday in Des Moines for an event aimed at building support for a potential Clinton White House bid. Craig Smith, senior adviser to the Ready for Hillary group, says he wants to make sure Iowa support is in place should Clinton decide to run.

Hosts of the event include the state chairs for Clinton's 2008 campaign and President Barack Obama's 2008 campaign.

Ready for Hillary is a so-called super PAC building a national network to benefit Clinton should she decide to seek the presidency. The former secretary of state and 2008 presidential candidate hasn't disclosed her plans.
