What is a Super PAC?

Technically known as independent expenditure-only committees, super PACs may raise UNLIMITED SUMS of money from corporations, unions, associations and individuals, then SPEND UNLIMITED SUMS to overtly advocate for or against political candidates.

What does RIGHT NOW MN raise money for?

RIGHT NOW MN Super PAC helps raise money for Libertarian and Conservative causes while generating independent expenditures in order to educate voters on the issues our country is facing.

Our plan is to support politicians who will listen to Mr. and Mrs. Mainstreet, whose voices are not being heard. With your support, we will raise donations to educate the electorate about issues impacting our country RIGHT NOW, we will support candidates who advocate for the issues we support, and we will hold candidates accountable for supporting issues and policies detrimental to our country’s continued growth and success.

What makes a Super PAC different from a traditional PAC?

Unlike traditional PACs, super PACs are PROHIBITED FROM DONATING money directly to political candidates, and their spending must not be coordinated with that of the candidates they benefit. Super PACs are required to report their donors to the Federal Election Commission on a monthly or semiannual basis – the super PAC's choice – in off -years, and monthly in the year of an election.

 

Super PACs are allowed to raise an unlimited amount of money and can accept contributions from companies, unions, individuals, nonprofit organizations, as to where traditional PACs are only able take money from individuals or other PACs and are limited by a $5,000 annual contribution limit that they can accept from individuals and are prohibited from accepting contributions from corporations and labor unions.

How do we donate?

First, we would like to thank you in your interest to donate! We will help guide you on how to donate. Currently all of our donations are setup through the RAISE platform. Please see https://rightnowmn.nationbuilder.com/raise_faqs for more info. 

How much should we donate?

We ask that you join your friends in making small monthly donations to our PAC. Either $5.00 or $10.00 per month, roughly equal to a couple of Starbucks coffees.

We suggest that you keep it under $16.66 per month because the identities of donors making donations to a State PAC of over $200 per year have to be disclosed to either the Federal Election Commission or the various States Election Commissions. As a PAC, we do not disclose who our donors are; but at the $200 per year level we are required to disclose your information to the various election commissions and this may be found online.

Are my donations tax-deductable?

Your donations are not tax-deductable to our Super PAC. The IRS states, "You cannot deduct contributions made to a political candidate, a campaign committee, or a newsletter fund.  Advertisements in convention bulletins and admissions to dinners or programs that benefit a political party or political candidate are not deductible."
