Posted at 12:58 p.m. on Jan. 9
A conservative Texas super PAC has spent $744K on media opposing Rep. Steve Stockman for the U.S. Senate.
The Texans for a Conservative Majority, a Republican-oriented hybrid super PAC supporting the re-election of Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, reported to the Federal Election Commission today that it had paid Target Enterprises $744,461 on 1/8, as independent expenditures for the production and placement of television advertising opposing Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, in this year’s Republican primary.
The hybrid super PAC operates with no limit on the size of contributions it can receive to fund political ads, and has a separate account to handle limited sized contributions to be used for contributions to candidates. The PAC received $2 million from Houston home builder Bob Perry before he died in April of this year.
The PAC reported having $2,195,028 cash on hand as of 6/30. View earlier posting on the PAC’s activity.
