Pro-Begich PAC Hasn't Raised a Dime Yet

A fundraising group backing the re-election of Alaska Democratic Sen. Mark Begich hasn't been able to generate any financial support so far.

Formed in May, the Put Alaska First Political Action Committee was supposed to file a mid-year report to the Federal Election Commission by law but failed to do so, according to The Hill.

"We haven't raised any money yet, and I thought I didn't have to file anything until we'd gotten going. So, I'll have to check into that," political consultant Jim Lottsfeldt, founder of the PAC, told The Hill.

The organization is raising money now and will "have something to report" at the next quarterly filing, Lottsfeldt said.

Lottsfeldt has assisted both Begich and Alaska Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski in the past. He said he set up Put Alaska First to help candidates regardless of party who concentrate more on Alaska priorities than national issues.

Lottsfeldt said in late June that he hopes to raise $3 million to $5 million. Asked by The Hill if that's still his aim, Lottsfeldt said, "I guess so."
