First this story in Congressional Quarterly, “GOP PACs Dominate.”
CQ MoneyLine analysis of PACs tied to lawmakers and candidates found that Republicans had raised more than $10 million during the first half of the year compared to the $5.5 million for Democrats.
The GOP PACs with the largest receipts (largest-to-smallest) belong to Mitt Romney, Eric Cantor, Jim DeMint, Sarah Palin, John Boehner, John McCain and Jon Kyl.
The Republican PACs also hold an edge in cash on hand, with $6.8 million compared to the Democrats $5.2 million.
Politico: American Solutions for Winning the Future (Newt Gingrich) pulled in 8.1 million the first half of this year compared to HuckPAC raising $300,000 during the same period of time. Huck is probably doing well as a TV host but he stinks as a fundraiser. HuckPAC appears to be running $100,000 in the red.
