Reform America Fund, a super PAC, has raised $4 million in the first 19 days of October to increase ad attacks on Hillary Clinton. The fund was funded primarily by Diane Hendricks. The Wisconsin businesswoman also donated $1.3 million to the fund in September.
The super PAC has spent $4.7 million to attack Clinton going into the general election.
Senator Ron Johnson is also supported by the fund, which spent $1.8 million to fight back against his Democratic opponent Russ Feingold. The group formed last year, but wasn’t active until September when it started to fundraise and spend money to shape the local Wisconsin elections and the general election.
Hendricks, a former supporter of Scott Walker for president, is an economic advisor to the Trump campaign.
Priorities USA Action, Clinton’s main super PAC, raised $18 million in the same timespan as Reform America Fund. The fundraising increased dramatically in recent weeks, outpacing any full month of fundraising aside from August and September.
Susan Mandel, a philanthropist donated $2.5 million, while Dustin Moskovitz, a Facebook co-founder, donated $2.5 million to the super PAC.
The filing showed that the group still had $15.2 million as of October 19. The group spent $532,000 on television ads, $751,000 on radio ads and reserved an additional $1.5 million for digital advertisements.
