The Facts About Super PACs

Get the facts about these fundraising groups, the attack ads that have made headlines and why you should know the name super PAC come Election Day.—Britt Middleton

Super PACs are special interest groups separate from a candidate’s campaign, but they can run ads, make phone calls and otherwise rally support for a specific candidate in the same way a candidate’s campaign would. There is no limit to the amount of money they can raise from individuals, corporations and other groups in order to support or defeat a political candidate.
