IEC PRIDE PAC Supported Candidates in 2014 Election

Posted in: Announcements, Legislative Updates

One hundred percent of the 33 candidates that received PRIDE PAC support this election successfully won their elections on November 4. PRIDE PAC is IEC’s federal political action committee (PAC) and is funded entirely through voluntary personal donations from IEC members.
 
PRIDE PAC disbursed $53,500 to incumbents, challengers, and federal leadership PACs in 2014, weighing in on key races such as Colorado, Kentucky, and Georgia’s high-profile US Senate contests as well as in two toss-up House races for Colorado’s 4th and Texas’ 23rd Districts.
 
IEC’s election footprint this year markedly increased from 2011-2012, up from just $14,000 in distributed funds last election cycle to 13 candidates with a 61.5 percent election success rate. PRIDE PAC has raised $73,428 to-date in member donations since January of 2013.
