Eclectic Recipients In Cantor PAC Donee List

Posted August 17, 2009 at 3:58pm

Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor, the No. 2-ranking House Republican, has established himself as one of his party’s most prolific fundraisers — and one of the top donors to his GOP colleagues’
campaign treasuries.

House GOP incumbents and candidates received a combined total of $120,000 last month from Cantor’s leadership political action committee, Every Republican Is Crucial — yes, its acronym matches the congressman’s first name — according to the PAC’s filing Monday with the Federal Election Commission.

Overall this year, Cantor’s PAC has donated $512,500 to Republican candidates and committees.
