Updated list of federal PAC acronyms and abbreviations

October 7, 2014

The Commission has published the 2014 edition of PACronyms, a list of the acronyms, abbreviations and common names of federal political action committees (PACs). This publication is helpful in identifying PACs that are not readily identified in their reports and statements on file with the FEC.

For each PAC listed, the index provides the full name of the PAC, its city, state, FEC identification number and its connected, sponsoring or affiliated organization.

PACronyms is available for download in either PDF or Excel formats at To order a free paper copy of PACronyms, call the FEC’s Public Records Office at 800/424-9530 (press 2) or 202/694-1120.
