SarahPAC gives $45K to candidates in last quarter, including $5K to Miller on eve of primary


JUNEAU, Alaska — Sarah Palin's political action committee gave $5,000 to Alaska tea party favorite Joe Miller a day before the state's primary in August.

Palin endorsed Miller for the U.S. Senate seat held by Democrat Mark Begich. Miller finished second in the GOP primary to Dan Sullivan, whom Palin appointed as Alaska's attorney general shortly before she resigned as governor in 2009.

In all, SarahPAC gave $45,000 to candidates between July and September, according to a Federal Election Commission filing. That includes $5,000 to Republican Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas, who is in a closely watched race.

The filing shows the disbursement to Miller's campaign was made Aug. 18.

SarahPAC raised more than $430,000 during the period and spent about $480,000. The committee ended the quarter with nearly $930,000 available.
