Palin's PAC ends latest quarter with about $170K on hand

    Disclosures show a sizable chunk of money went to consultants, with only two candidates receiving separate $5,000 donations.

    JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Sarah Palin's political action committee raised just under $150,000 during the last fundraising quarter, far less than it brought in during the same period in the last three election years.

    As of June 30, Sarah PAC reported having about $170,000 available.

    Disclosures show a sizable chunk of money went to consultants. Sarah PAC only donated to two candidates, giving $5,000 each to Colorado U.S. Senate candidate Darryl Glenn and Paul Nehlen, who's challenging House Speaker Paul Ryan in Wisconsin.

    Palin launched Sarah PAC in 2009, following her failed Republican vice presidential run. Between April and June 2010, the comparable period, Sarah PAC raised about $865,000.

    During that period in 2012, Sarah PAC raised almost $780,000 and ended with about $1.2 million on hand. Sarah PAC raised about $465,000 for the quarter in 2014.
