Clinton super PAC formed
Washington Post - The group is chaired by Allida Black, founder of the Eleanor Roosevelt Papers Project at George Washington University and Roosevelt Institute.
Black was also behind a pro-Clinton PAC in the 2008 primary, WomenCount, and she pushed for Clinton’s name to be put into nomination at the convention that year. (Black was a delegate from Virginia.) She told reporters at the time that she had cashed in her retirement savings to follow Clinton to 14 states. She and Judy Beck, her partner and the group’s treasurer, served on Clinton’s Virginia Women’s Steering Committee in that election.
