Perry Wants a PAC

Rick Perry sent a request to the Federal Election Commission asking if he could turn his presidential campaign into a political action committee or even possibly a so-called super PAC, the Washington Post reports.

"If Perry were to turn his campaign into a PAC, he could accept contributions of up to $5,000 from one person to donate directly to other candidates or run his own advertising supporting them. If he decides to create a super PAC instead, he could raise unlimited amounts from individuals or corporations but could only spend the money without coordinating with the candidates he was helping."
