The super PAC supporting Hillary Clinton has raised $15.6 million in six months.

The numbers, which will be disclosed when the group Priorities USA Action files its statements, include donations from billionaire financier George Soros and Hollywood luminaries Steven Spielberg, J.J. Abrams and Jeffrey Katzenberg.

The group’s chief strategist and co-chairman Guy Cecil said on Twitter that $12.5 million of that amount was raised in the last four weeks.

Other donors include former Congresswoman Barbara Lee, who runs a foundation devoted to women in elected office, and longtime Clinton friend, Haim Saban.

On Wednesday, Clinton’s campaign estimated it had raised more than $45 million since the former Secretary of State announced her candidacy in April, breaking Obama’s record for first-quarter fundraising after announcing his 2012 reelection campaign.

The amount is still far less than the $100 million that Republican Jeb Bush is projected to report on July 15, when candidates are required to file their finances.
