Sullivan Supporter Dumps $1,000,000 into Super PAC

Billionaire hosted Sullivan in Aspen — Generated thousands in campaign cash


ANCHORAGE — One of U.S. Senate candidate Dan Sullivan’s supporters has dumped $1,000,000 into Outside groups attacking Mark Begich. The donation is New York billionaire Paul Singer’s second major boost to Sullivan after hosting a plush Aspen fundraiser for Sullivan in February.

The donation to Karl Rove’s Crossroads supports the political attack ads in Alaska that have been called false by independent fact check groups.

“Dan Sullivan and his allies continue to believe they can buy Alaska’s Senate seat by writing million dollar checks without looking Alaskans in the eyes and sharing the dangerous special interest agenda they support,” said Max Croes, Communications Director for Alaskans for Begich.

The Aspen event Sullivan attended was labeled a discreet ‘Mega-donor war council‘ by Politico and mirrored a similar New York City event in support of Sullivan in December that helped raise six figures in Outside checks for Sullivan.

Karl Rove’s groups American Crossroads and Crossroads GPS have pledged to spend more than $7 million on television ads in Alaska.

Singer heads New York-based investment firm Elliott Management Corp. He has already provided millions to Karl Rove’s Crossroads groups. American Crossroads has reportedly already raised $11 million dollars to run ads in the 2014 election.

Outside groups have collectively pledged nearly $10 million in television spending from now through Election Day in addition to the millions they’ve already spent.
