Ex-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s leadership PAC, “Sarah PAC,” spent $774,000 in the third quarter, some of it in support of 10 Republican congressional candidates.

That includes Rep. Allen West of Florida; Rep. Jeff Flake of Arizona, who is running for Senate; Senate candidate Ted Cruz of Texas; and House candidates Mia Love of Utah and Ted Yoho of Florida, Politico reports.

The 10 candidates received four-figure donations — $54,500 in total. Sarah PAC also spent at least $270,000 on postage and $242,000 on direct mail and contact list rentals, according to federal filings.

Meanwhile, the PAC brought in $843,500, mostly from donations of $200 or less. The group now has $1.25 million of cash in the bank, giving it plenty of room to spend more in the final stages of the election campaign.
