A new "super PAC" has been formed to help Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., in her run for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination.
The PAC, Citizens for a Working America, will be headed by former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell and Bachmann adviser Ed Brookover, with lawyer Marc Nuttle also involved, The Washington Post blog The Fix reports.
“Michele Bachmann is a principled conservative with the policy prescriptions our country needs to pull out of its economic doldrums,” Brookover wrote in an email to The Fix. “We look forward to promoting her and her programs to the American public.”
Citizens for a Working America was initially formed in the fall of 2010 and spent more than $250,000 to defeat former Rep. John Spratt, D-S.C., but now will devote itself exclusively to Bachmann. This is the second super PAC to aid Bachmann, joining Keep Conservatives United, which was formed a month ago.
Other GOP presidential contenders have also formed super PACs that are allowed to raise unlimited amounts of donations.
A PAC for Mitt Romney has already pulled in $12 million this year and Gov. Rick Perry, R-Texas, has six super PACs behind him, according to the Post.
