Michigan PACs Raking in the Cash

The Lansing State Journal reports that according to the Michigan Campaign Finance Network, special interest groups that donate to politicians and political candidates are well on their way to setting a new fundraising record for the 2005-06 election cycle. The top 150 political action committees have already raised 23% more through October 2005 than the top 150 had raised at this point in the 2003-04 election cycle: $13.6 million compared to $11.1 million. Three biggest PACs: House Republican Campaign Committee ($1.2 million), Senate Republican Campaign Committee ($938,240) and the Michigan House Democratic Fund ($810,852). With Senate Majority Leader Ken Sikkema not eligible to run for re-election in 2006 because of term limits, GOP senators such as Wayne Kuipers of Holland and Jason Allen of Traverse City each have raised about $100,000 in a bid to contribute money to GOP Senate races and earn enough support to become the next Senate leader.
