Giffords PAC Independent Expenditures
1) Jason Lewis (MN 2nd Congressional District)
First-term incumbent Jason Lewis (R) of Minnesota’s Second Congressional district. His $1.36 million in the bank is matched just by Giffords’ gun control organization, which is putting $1.3 million into the race against him. And Lewis’ Democrat opponent, Angie Craig, has $1.7 million in the bank. I have also included a media buys sheet so you get an idea of how large this TV buy is from Giffords’ group. Note that this is just for TV buys. The other $100K is apparently for radio.
2) Barbara Comstock (VA 10th Congressional District)
3) Michael Coffman (CO 6th Congressional District)
Others with lower level unspecified spending amounts.
4) Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA 5th Congressional District)
5 and 6) Steve Knight and Mimi Walters
7) Don Bacon
8) John Faso
Hard money donations from Giffords. These aren’t the important donations, but we are including them so you can see who the gun control groups like the most. Five Republican Congressional incumbents are getting money from gun control advocates. Bloomberg’s Everytown also gave money to four other Congressmen: Peter King (NY), Dan Donovan (NY), Carlos Curbelo (FL), and Brian Fitzpatrick (PA). Democrats that Everytown donated to includes: Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01), Mike Quigley (IL-05), Mike Thompson (CA-05), Carolyn Maloney (NY-12), Debbie Dingell (MI-12), Conor Lamb (PA-17), Stephanie Murphy (FL-07), Josh Gottheimer (NJ-05), Matt Cartwright (PA-08), Aftab Pureval (OH-01), Jennifer Zimmerman (FL-01), and Lucy McBath (GA-06).
