Georgia Senate Republicans change up fundraising effort
By CHRISTINA A. CASSIDY Associated Press
ATLANTA (AP) - Records show the fundraising arm of the Georgia Senate Republican Caucus has not filed a mid-year campaign finance report nor has it submitted its annual registration with the ethics commission.
Senate Majority Leader Ronnie Chance says the caucus has been transitioning to a new political action committee and pointed to state law that doesn't require filing until a PAC reaches $25,000 in combined contributions or expenditures on a candidate in a calendar year.
Chance says the new PAC, called the Georgia Republican Senatorial Committee Inc., was formed in August and has held one fundraiser since then. He says the PAC hasn't reached the $25,000 threshold and is operating within state law.
The caucus' old committee last filed a report Jan. 2, showing it had nearly $97,000 in cash.
