Another member of Congress who sits on the House Financial Services Committee starts a leadership PAC.
Rep. Denny Heck, D-Wash., has just registered his new leadership PAC, Heck PAC, with the Federal Election Commission. The PAC is based in Seattle, and the treasurer is Philip Lloyd. Rep. Heck raised more than $2 million in the 2011-2012 cycle, including $780,254 from PACs and other committees. Most of his PAC support over the last few cycles has come from labor unions.

In the first six months of 2013 he raised $406,785, including $220,410 from PACs. His campaign committee has $337,784 cash on hand as of June 30, but the committee has $350,000 in outstanding loans from the candidate left over from the 2010 election.
Rep. Heck sits on the House Financial Services Committee, a magnet for PAC contributions.
