Clinton Super PAC Gains Traction, Still Dwarfed By Bush

A super PAC supporting Hillary Clinton has had some big donors in recent months, but its fundraising is still far behind one supporting Jeb Bush.

It's probably not too surprising that the super PAC supporting Hillary Clinton has had some big donors, and a filing from the Federal Election Commission Friday showed just how big. 

The super PAC, Priorities USA Action, has brought in about $15.6 million in the first half of 2015. In the last month of June alone, the campaign received eight separate $1 million checks.

It also received $1 million checks from director Steven Spielberg, George Soros and Jeffrey Katzenberg.

It appears Clinton's PAC has only spent about $1.5 million of that so far. 

Clinton's campaign still faces some concern that her fundraising mechanisms are lagging behind her Republican competitors.

But she still has a lot of catching up to do. A super PAC supporting Jeb Bush has pulled in a whopping $103 million already this year. (Video via Jeb 2016)
