Nearly Everyone Has a Leadership PAC

National Journal: "Once the province of actual and aspiring congressional leaders, who used them to dish out money to win friends and forge alliances, leadership PACs are now commonplace all the way to the back benches of Capitol Hill. It's symptomatic of the constant money chase that consumes so much of modern lawmakers' time and energy."

"Of the new senators elected last November, only one, Maine's Angus King, doesn't have one yet. Overall, 94 of the 100 current senators have created such PACs... Roughly two-thirds of House members have them, as well."
