WASHINGTON (AP) — As Hillary Rodham Clinton weighs a second White House run, pieces of the Democratic establishment are beginning to fall into place to help a possible candidacy.

Several super political action committees are helping with early efforts to ensure Clinton is ready to compete aggressively if she decides to try again to become the first female president.

The super PAC American Bridge 21st Century recently launched Correct the Record, a project to defend the former secretary of state and other potential 2016 candidates against Republican critics.

Priorities USA Action, the super PAC that promoted President Barack Obama's re-election, is considering a reconfiguration that could boost Clinton.
