PACs Report Their Biggest Month for Giving

Several political action committees of major companies, unions, and issue groups reported their highest levels of monthly giving this cycle for contributions to candidates and political committees.  

With primaries underway, some general election candidates already identified, and Congress still in session, several PACs reported May was their largest month for giving this cycle. PACs filing monthly disclosure reports must file on or before June 20th.  

Hot Topics Bring Contributions to Capitol Hill

When issues become hot topics for legislation or oversight by members of Congress, campaign contributions tend to flow to Capitol Hill.  

Early filings of January financial activity by companies and organizations with political action committees (PACs) show that American Crystal Sugar Company PAC and Comcast Corporation/NBCUniversal PAC-Federal were in the top group of contributors. Campaign finance reports are due to be filed by close of business Thursday.
