Super PAC for America also gave $50,000 on June 11 to West Main Street Values PAC Inc., set up by allies of Graham.
Super PAC for America raised $4 million in the 2011-2012 cycle. The largest donation was $500,000 from the League of American Voters of Washington D.C., a nonprofit 501(c)(4) organization. Michael Reagan provides the introduction letter on their website and was also chairman of Super PAC for America in 2012. Super PAC for America made $1.5 million in independent expenditures in 2011-2012, including $1.1 million against Barack Obama and almost $400,000 supporting Mitt Romney.
