Republican Attorneys General Association Starts Super PAC

A day after the Supreme Court made public an opinion on federal campaign financing, an association of state Republican Attorneys General registered a new Super PAC to make independent expenditures in federal elections.

This Spring political money appears to be crossing between branches of government, and between the state and federal levels.

The Republican Attorneys General Association became more active politically on Thursday when it registered a new Super PAC, RAGA Action Fund, with the Federal Election Commission. The committee registration states it intends to make independent expenditures and will not make contributions to federal candidates. The committee may receive contributions in unlimited amounts.

The Republican Attorneys General Association registered as a Section 527 political organization in January 2014. Their registration stated its purpose was “to preserve the constitutional design of federalism; to address policy challenges and advocate solutions; to support Republican state attorneys general in fighting federal encroachment, protecting citizens against crime and promoting free markets; to provide the Republican attorneys general a platform for their proper role as leaders in the national Republican Party; to assist in the election of Republican candidates for attorney general and the reelection of incumbent Republican attorneys general.”
