Members of Congress and other political leaders often establish nonconnected committees, general known as "leadership PACs," to support candidates for various federal and nonfederal offices. A leadership PAC is defined as a political committee that is directly or indirectly established, financed, maintained or controlled by a candidate or an individual holding federal office, but is not an authorized committee of the candidate or officeholder and is not affiliated with an authorized committee of a candidate or officeholder.
Below is a list of Statements of Organization (arranged alphabetically by the name of the committee) where the statement indicates that the committee is a Leadership PAC. Because committees identify the Leadership PAC sponsor in several different ways, columns in the table are included to show all of them. Leadership PACs must identify themselves to the FEC because certain bundled contributions they receive from lobbyist registrants or PACs of lobbyist registrants must now be disclosed to the FEC.
