CAMPAIGN TRAILS

Obama’s Super PAC Slumps

Priorities USA Action, the largest pro-Obama super PAC, is trailing GOP political action committees as the two sides prepare for the first general election in which they are likely to play a major role. Priorities USA Action raised $1.6 million in April, $3 million less than what Restore Our Future, a PAC that supports presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney, drew in over the same period. Donations for Obama’s super PAC came mostly from organized labor, and some of that money came in only on the last day of the filing period, according to federal records. Priorities USA Action laid out $1.9 million in expenditures last month, with most of it going to ads attacking the Romney campaign.
