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.
In one of the group’s first declarations of the year, Club for Growth’s super-PAC recently ran an advertisement targeting Rep. Justin Amash’s (R-Mich.) Republican primary challenger, businessman Brian Ellis.
Club for Growth Action only spent $150 in independent expenditures during December for “website maintenance,” according to forms.
