There isn’t much of a legacy nor political action after telemarketers spend a million dollars to raise a million dollars — but that has never before stopped Newt Gingrich.
And it hasn’t stopped the vendors who collect their fees and all the fundraising intelligence and donor data they can.
The American Legacy PAC reported today it raised $1,215,875 and spent $1,201,980 from Jan. 1 to June 5, leaving $74,125 cash on hand. The PAC is run by Mike Murray, and its co-founders and co-chairs are Newt and Callista Gingrich.
The PAC paid $1,130,165 to Infocision of Akron, Ohio, for telemarketing; $20,517 to Bank of America for merchant fees; $14,579 to TMA Direct for rent/admin support/phone; among others. Mike Murray is president and CEO of TMA Direct, a company that provides list brokerage, list management, digital marketing, and data services.
The PAC gave $5,000 on May 28 to Gabriel Gomez for Senate and $5,000 on May 28 to Cuccinelli for Governor.
