Two junior members of the House Democratic majority have formed leadership PACs, which members of Congress use as fundraising vehicles to assist their congressional colleagues.

Reps. Jason Altmire , a second-term member from Pennsylvania, and Glenn Nye , a freshman from Virginia, are sponsoring the new PACs, which generally can give $5,000 per election to a candidate for Congress.  

Altmire’s PAC is called Southwest Pennsylvania Political Action Committee (SWPA PAC), a reference to the region in which his 4th Congressional District is located. Nye’s committee, Tidewater PAC , also references his constituency in Virginia’s 2nd District, a southeastern area that abuts the Chesapeake Bay and is dominated by the city of Virginia Beach.
