The Alabama U.S. Senate Race: More on PACs and Donations
Katie Britt has far outpaced Brooks in donations from larger donors (those donating $500, $1000, or over $2,000), while Mo Brooks has garnered a lot of financial support from small donors (less than $200). At the end of May, the Federal Elections Commission website showed Mo Brooks had received contributions of $741,828 that were $200 or less, compared to $202,724 for Britt. At the same time, Britt had received over $4.8 million to about $1.3 million for Brook in donations of $2,000 or more.
A recent addition to the Political Action Committees (PAC) promoting Katie Britt in Alabama is American Dream Federal Action, which operates as a Canary Committee PAC. But what you won't find on their website is that it was formed by Ryan Salame, Co-CEO of FTX Digital Markets, a Bahamas subsidiary of FTX. Salame kicked off the PAC with a $4 million contribution. Interesting that he waited until Britt got into the runoff before contributing. Could he be trying to buy future access?
