This page shows only "regular" PACs -- those of type Q "qualified" or N "nonqualified" that claim to be "connected" to another organization. FEC allows PACs to characterize these related organizations as a 'Corporation', 'Labor Organization', 'Member Organization', 'Cooperative', 'Trade Association' or 'corporation without capital stock'. The coding of a related organization is left up to the PAC submitting paperwork to FEC--not all filers complete this correctly. No effort has been made to correct or fix these entries.
