ABC’s Political Action Committee (ABC PAC) has raised $1,757,624 during the current election cycle, which began in January 2011, and has contributed nearly the same amount to candidates and political organizations that support the merit shop philosophy. This places ABC PAC in the top 20 nationally in terms of political contributions to candidates this election cycle. 

Although the 2012 to-date total is less than the record-setting $2.1 million ABC PAC raised for the 2007-2008 cycle, there is still a month left before the November elections.
