Hillary Rodham Clinton has spent nearly $19 million and has hired hundreds of staff during the first three months of her presidential campaign.

That's according to information released by her campaign in advance of a fundraising report she'll file later Wednesday with federal regulators. In total, Clinton raised more than $46 million from more than 250,000 contributors.

Clinton's spending underscores her early effort to build a national campaign, even as aides say she's focused on the primary contest. Beyond paying salaries for 343 new employees, her campaign purchased lists of voters in four early voting states and spent heavily on building up a digital team.
