The Comcast Corporation & NBCUniversal PAC reported this week that it gave out $151,000 in political contributions to members of Congress and their PACs during July. The PAC gave $81,500 to Democrats (53 percent) and $69,500 to Republicans (47 percent). The largest contributions ($5,000) went to Sen. Patrick J. Toomey, R-Pa.; the leadership PAC of House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.; and the leadership PAC of House Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn, D-S.C. The PAC gave out $81,000 on July 29, but there was not a shift to Republicans. The PAC has $657,278 cash on hand as of July 31.
The July percentages for contributions by party were the same as they had been for the first six months of 2013, when they gave $427,500 (53 percent) to Democrats and $384,500 (53 percent) to Republicans. These percentages include contributions to campaign committees, leadership PACs and party committees.
