The “Ready for Hillary” political action committee’s nationwide movement to support Hillary Clinton to run for president stopped in Ames on Sept. 16.

Members from the group are touring the country in a charter bus to visit college and university campuses in key political states such as Iowa, said Seth Bringman, communications director for the group. 

The goal is to inform students of the “Ready for Hillary” movement and give them a chance to sign up for the group, Bringman said. Students who sign up receive a free poster and button. 

The group has visited six colleges and universities in Iowa. 

Pierce Fieldsend, sophomore in political science, is a member of the Ames group. He got involved last semester as a way to support Hillary Clinton and gain experience for future jobs or internships, he said. 

The bus was set up from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 16 on the west side of the Memorial Union and was going to Drake University after its stop in Ames.
