Democratic super PACs partying together since last year
The decision by several major Democratic super PACs to join forces for fundraising, announced last month, apparently formalizes some long-standing collaboration. PartyTime has gotten hold of an old invite which detailed the events for a briefing last October that brought together a number of top political fundraising organizations associated with the Democratic party and allied organizations.
The invite, which represents one of the first super PAC fundraisers to hit Sunlight's PartyTime database, listed American Bridge 21st Century, America Votes, EMILY'S List, House Majority PAC, Priorities USA Action and the Senate Majority PAC. The invitation described these PACs and super PACs as organizations "working in collaboration to ensure the progressive electoral infrastructure has the tools and resources necessary to win in 2012."
Listed as hosts for the event: were major Obama inaugural donors Reinier and Nancy Beeuwkes, Paul and Joanne Egerman and Barbara Lee, along with other major Democratic donors.
Stephanie Schriock, president of Emily's List and David Brock, the founder of American Bridge 21st Century, were listed as event speakers.
PartyTime wonders, how many more of these kind of meetings have taken place? Got an invite? Share it here.
