Club for Growth Action posts improved December haul

The conservative super-PAC Club for Growth Action raised nearly $391,800 during the month of December, according to new filings with the Federal Election Commission.

It was the super-PAC’s largest haul since September, and it mostly stemmed from known Tea Party donor Richard Uihlein, who wrote a $250,000 check to the sister organization of the powerful anti-tax group. Uihlein is the chief executive of Uline, a packing supply company.

Donations to the super-PAC suffered from peaks and valleys in 2013 during a non-election year, ranging from just more than $2,000 in March to $683,770 in September. But the super-PAC ended the year with $1.7 million in the bank.
