Put Alaska First Is Now 100% Obama and Reid

RNC Communications - August 11, 2014

According to newly posted figures from the Federal Elections Commission, every penny of the more than $667,000 raised in July by the pro-Begich SuperPAC Put Alaska First came directly from Harry Reid’s Washington, DC-based Senate Majority PAC. What’s more is thatthese donations came during the same period that President Obama fundraised for Senate Majority PAC. With Mark Begich’s blessing, Harry Reid and President Obama are directly meddling in Alaskas elections with the help of radical environmentalist billionaire Tom Steyer and anti-Second Amendment New York City billionaire Michael Bloomberg, whose gun control group once included Begich as a member. If you’re reporting on this news, please see the following comment from the Republican National Committee:

“This is the clearest proof yet that the SuperPAC supporting Mark Begich is nothing more than a front group for Harry Reid and the left-wing billionaires helping President Obama try to keep control of the Senate. The real question Alaskans need to be asking themselves is why are President Obama, Harry Reid, and anti-energy, anti-Second Amendment billionaires spending so much money to send Mark Begich back to Washington?” – RNC spokesman Kyle Kohli


“Even Ostensibly Independent, State-Specific Efforts, Like The Mark Begich-Allied Put Alaska First, Receive The Overwhelming Majority Of Their Funding Directly From Senate Majority PAC.” (Alex Roarty, “Why Harry Reid Is Sidelining Independent Super PACs,” National Journal, 6/21/14)

  • Reid’s Senate Majority PAC Has Become One Of The Most Successful Super PAC’s In Spreading False Accusations. “Reid’s stamp is on some of the most successful Democratic outside groups. Susan McCue, his former chief of staff, runs the Senate Majority PAC, and Reid has solicited money on its behalf. The super-PAC raised $26 million through the end of May for the November 2014 elections with the help of billionaires such as former money manager Tom Steyer, financier George Soros and Michael Bloomberg, the founder and majority owner of Bloomberg News parent Bloomberg LP.” (Annie Linskey and Julie Bykowicz, “Democrats Griping About False Ads Respond With Deception,” Bloomberg, 6/18/14)    

·         Radical Pro-EPA and Anti-Keystone Environmentalist Tom Steyer Wrote A $5 Million Check For the Pro-Begich Senate Majority PAC. “On April 21, Steyer wrote NextGen Climate Action, his independent expenditure committee, a $5 million check specifically ‘earmarked for Senate Majority PAC,’ a Democratic group with deep ties to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.).” (Lachlan Markay, “Tom Steyer: Party Animal,” The Washington Free Beacon, 6/13/14)

  • Michael BloombergWhose Anti-Gun Group Begich Was Once A Member Of,Gave $2.5 Million To Harry Reid’s Senate Majority PAC. “Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg donated $2.5 million to a super PAC aimed at helping Senate Democrats maintain their majority, a potentially significant development that could have a big impact in 2014. Bloomberg, one of the richest men in the world, made the donation to Senate Majority PAC, which is run by former aides to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and other top Democrats.” (John Bresnahan, “Michael Bloomberg Gives $2.5M To Senate Majority PAC,” Politico, 1/7/14)
