On August 11, Mayday announced that it will be making large independent expenditures in favor of Congressman Walter Jones (R-N.C.), Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter (D-N.H.) and Arizona Democratic candidate Ruben Gallego in Arizona. Gallego is running for an open seat and the money spent on his behalf will be for the primary, which is August 26.
Mayday is Lawrence Lessig’s SuperPAC, which has raised $12,000,000 to make independent expenditures on behalf of major party candidates who will work in favor of a bill in 2015 for public funding of congressional campaigns.
Jones is the only Republican who is co-sponsoring HR 20, the bill in the current congress for public funding. The other 158 co-sponsors are also Democrats.
Mayday had previously chosen two other candidates for support, and expects to choose three more soon.
