Corporate Sponsored Super PACs

Corporate Sponsored Super PACs

While it is likely that much of the business money coming into the elections is funneled through dark money sources such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which so far has spent at least $35 million on races nationwide, the analysis found that business corporations remain the second largest source of Super PAC money, accounting for 12% of all Super PAC funds.

Some of the largest and most active Super PACs receive a significant portion of their funding from businesses: pro-Romney Restore Our Future received over 20% of its funds from for-profit corporations.
