PAC 101: A Guide to the Rules and Regulations for Political Advocacy Groups
Thursday, March 15 | 11 a.m.–12 p.m. EST

Since the Supreme Court’s 2010 decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, PACs and super PACs have taken on an increasingly important role in US elections. In this webinar, we’ll look at the US campaign finance system, explain how PACs and super PACs raised over $4 billion during the 2016 election cycle, where they spent it, and address the following key questions:

  • What are the different types of PACs and non-profit status groups, and how does the regulatory framework for them differ?
  • How are the dynamics between formal party institutions and outside entities changing?
  • What happened in the 2016 elections, and what are the trends among PACs and super PACs as we head into the 2018 midterms?
  • How is donor behavior changing in light of the broader shift in the campaign finance system?

Join National Journal Presentation Center analysts Taryn MacKinney, Daniel Stublen, Madelaine Pisani, and Alistair Taylor for an in-depth discussion on the US campaign finance system, the role of PACs and super PACs, and what to expect moving forward.
