FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 6, 2019
MAVERICK PAC TO GIVE $25,000 TO REPUBLICAN CHALLENGERS
The ‘MavPAC Majority Makers’ are challenging vulnerable Democrats or running for competitive open seats
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today Maverick PAC (MavPAC), the premier national donor network of conservative young professionals, will contribute to and endorse ten rising candidates for Congress, coined the “MavPAC Majority Makers.” The candidates, who are either running to challenge vulnerable Democrat incumbents or for competitive open seats, will each receive a contribution of $2,500 from MavPAC.
2020 MavPAC Majority Makers:
- Young Kim (CA-39)
- Judson Sapp (FL-03)
- Amanda Makki (FL-13)
- Catalina Lauf (IL-14)
- Nicole Malliotakis (NY-11)
- Wesley Hunt (TX-07)
- Tony Gonzales (TX-23)
- Beth Van Duyne (TX-24)
- Genevieve Collins (TX-32)
- Omari Faulkner (US Senate – VA)
“This is the first time in our 15-year history that MavPAC has committed an entire funding round to primary candidates,” said MavPAC National Chairman Fritz Brogan.
“This move reflects the organization’s growth and preparedness to evolve to have a greater impact on national politics.
“MavPAC members — more than 500 young professionals from across the country — voted on a pool of strong, qualified candidates resulting in these names earning the most votes.
“We believe these candidates will make exemplary elected officials and represent a new wave of pragmatic, results-oriented ‘mavericks’ that will help Republicans take back the majority.”
With this funding round, Maverick PAC’s total distribution in 2019 is over $75,000, with additional funding rounds planned between now and Election Day. In 2018, MavPAC contributed nearly $200,000 towards Congressional candidates. MavPAC’s members have raised millions of dollars bundling for candidates over the last few election cycles.
