Go Sarah, Go …
SARAH PAC, the political action committee formed by former Alaskan Governor Sarah “Sarahcuda” Palin collected $1.4 million over the final six months of 2009. I wonder if those political pundits on both sides still think it was a mistake for Sarah Palin to step down as the Alaskan governor? She is a fund raising machine.
Sarah PAC, the political action committee of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, collected $1.4 million over the final six months of 2009, a solid — if not spectacular — total that demonstrates her fundraising capacity as she mulls a bid for national office in 2012.
“We are thrilled,” said Palin senior adviser Meg Stapleton about the fundraising total. “Common sense Americans know the direction we need to take this country and that Sarah Palin will be instrumental in taking us there this year.”
For the year, Palin raised roughly $2.1 million through Sarah PAC and ended the year with $900,000 in the bank. She donated $64,600 to candidates and party committees.

Also, two other likely contenders for the 2012 Republican nomination flexed their fundraising muscles in 2010. Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty have each raised millions of dollars for their political action committees last year.
