Candidate Starts Leadership PAC Before Winning

In an optimistic move, a Congressional candidate has registered a leadership PAC before winning a seat in Congress.  

Republican state senator Mimi Walters , R-Calif., has registered  BOL-PAC - Blessings of Liberty PAC,  as a leadership PAC with the Federal Election Commission.  

PAC Contributions Returned

While members of Congress and federal candidates are known for soliciting millions of dollars from political action committees (PACs), there are a few instances when campaigns refund the money to PACs .  

Treasurers of corporate, trade association, and labor PACs are happy to get the money back, especially after they have already received credit for making the original contribution. Now they can use the money to give to another campaign.
