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.

Walters is running in California’s 45th Congressional District to fill the seat being vacated by the retirement of Rep. John Campbell, R-Calif. She has reported receipts of $869,297 through May 14th, including $230,356 from PACs and other committees. Her campaign spent $703,368, and it has $165,929 cash on hand as of May 14th.

Several current members of Congress have started leadership PCs in June. These include Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., who started Clean PAC; Sen. Edward Markey, D-Mass., who started Educate and Innovate PAC; Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Pa., who started Leaders Only Unite PAC aka Lou PAC; and Rep. Susan Brooks, R-Ind., who started Supporting United States of America’s Next Leaders PAC (Susan PAC).

    Since collectivist illusions are generally conjured up to exploit our emotions and attempt to justify plunder’s injustice, we have no reason to accept them as moral, legitimate, or just.
