The involvement of immediate family members in a drunken brawl does little to boost one’s political prospects.
On a different level, the same might be said of a stingy leadership PAC.
Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s SarahPAC continued to perform underwhelmingly as a source of funds for other candidates in 2014′s third quarter, a report filed with the FEC this week showed. Out of $1.4 million the PAC had available in the third quarter — $978,000 sitting in the bank at the beginning of the July 1-Sept. 30 period, plus another more than $433,000 raised during that time — SarahPAC managed to donate just $45,000 to fellow Republicans running in the midterms. That’s a little more than 3 percent.
But the PAC’s meager record on supporting other candidates may simply be a reflection of Palin’s own penchant for keeping her checkbook closed when it comes to political appeals. The former governor has made only two contributions at the federal level, both of them a decade ago and adding up to a grand total of $628.

Maybe there hasn't been a candidate from the republicans worth funding/supporting.

Must be nice to be crooked but have rich people give you money. I would imagine PACs are a loophole riddled piece of work.
