While nothing is unusual about vice presidents raising money for their party or for their president's reelection campaign, it is highly unusual for a vice president to create his own PAC.

Great America Committee is the only sitting vice president to start such a committee of his own, and is expected to use the organization to back Republican candidates in the 2018 midterm elections that are supportive of President Trump.
