A president Barack Obama-approved super PAC is struggling to bring in the cash. The group, Priorities USA Action, brought in just $2 million in February, half coming from comedian Bill Maher’s $1 million donation, The Washington Post’s political blog The Fix reported.

February marked the first month the PAC, founded by former White House aides, was operating with the president’s approval. Obama had opposed super PACS, but shifted position and encouraged donations to them, the Post reported.

The $2 million raised pales in comparison with what GOP super PACs are raising. American Crossroads plans to spend $240 million this election season and super PACs backing individual presidential candidates are raising as much as the candidates themselves, the Post reported.
