"Americans have made it clear that they are fed up with being voiceless in the age of Super PACs and mega-million dollar donors, this frustration should be read as a warning for politicians as they head into the final stretch before the elections," says Jonathan Soros, cofounder of Friends of Democracy and "son of billionaire hedge funder George Soros," The Huffington Post points out in a piece about the Super PAC excerpted on the PAC's website.
That means broadcasters in the districts in California, Minnesota, Wisconsin and New Hampshire represented by the congressmen not only benefit from the Super PAC money, but from the dollars targeting all that other Super PAC spending.
Websites will also benefit, since the group says it is also launching an "aggressive online campaign" in those districts. The incumbents in the Super PAC's sites are Dan Lungren (Calif.), Chip Cravaack (Minn.), Sean Duffy (Wis.) and Charlie Bass (N.H.).
