You probably remember -- well, that's not true -- there's an off chance you remember that ESA president Mike Gallagher announced
that the organization was going to be throwing some coin behind national candidates via a political action committee, with contributions somewhere between $50,000 and $100,000 by year's end. Well, according to GamePolitics
, the going has been slow so far.
The site reports that just three candidates have received money from the organization so far to the tune of $4,300 all told. They are:
- Rep. Jim Clyburn D-SC, $1,000
- Rep. Artur Davis D-AL, $1,000
- Rep. Mary Bono Mack R-CA, $2,300
The small start could also be the result of slow fundraising: The PAC has garnered just six donations so far for a total of $27,500. Also of note, as of April 15 the ESA had financially backed no presidential candidates.
