Alaska Sarah Palin’s political action committee contributed at least $87,500 to candidates she’s endorsed in the last few months, according to a report filed Sunday with the Federal Elections Commission.
But SarahPAC’s financial disclosure also shows Palin spending more than $210,000 on consulting.
Candidates receiving money from Palin for the period covering April 1 to June 30 include former Gov. Terry Branstad, who won last month’s Republican gubernatorial primary in Iowa, and Joe Miller, who’s challenging Alaska U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the August GOP primary. Each received $5,000.
Palin entered the reporting period with more than $916,000 on hand. She received more than $865,800 in contributions, and ended the period with more than $1 million on hand, according to the filings.
