SCF Members Donate $16 Million
Alexandria, VA — The Senate Conservatives Fund announced today that it has raised more than $16 million to elect conservative candidates to the United States Senate during 2011-2012 election cycle. This total includes funds raised by the Senate Conservatives Fund PAC as well as the Senate Conservatives Action super PAC.
"We set a goal of raising $10 million to elect conservatives to the Senate in 2012 and our members have far exceeded it by contributing more than $16 million to this effort," said Senate Conservatives Fund Executive Director Matt Hoskins. "This is a tremendous show of strength from the grassroots and it's provided an important boost to our endorsed candidates."
The Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) was founded by U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) to support principled candidates often overlooked or opposed by the Washington establishment. In 2010, SCF raised $9.3 million and helped elect U.S. Senators Pat Toomey (R-PA), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Lee (R-UT), and Ron Johnson (R-WI). Earlier this year, SCF became an independent, unaffiliated PAC and formed a super PAC called Senate Conservatives Action (SCA).
