PAC Receipts Increase

Even though the 2010 Elections are still 6 weeks away, Political Action Committees have already received more money in 2010 than each of the two previous midterms in 2002 and 2006. Among the top 5 PACs for each cycle, the 2010 cycle has nearly doubled the 2002 total of $73,259,357, as the chart below shows. The PAC with the most receipts is the Service Employees International Union, according to OpenSecrets. Similarly, communication costs of PACs in 2010 have also outpaced the two previous election cycles.

Though 2010 is only 7% more than 2006, the cycle just began to heat up.
