NRA haul down from March but still far higher than its opponents

The National Rifle Association’s Political Victory Fund raised about 2.75 times as much money in April as the leading gun-control PACs combined, filings with the Federal Election Commission revealed on Tuesday.

The NRA’s total of $1,852,323.28 represents a retreat from the record amount the group raised in March but is still more than the top three gun-control PACs combined. The Giffords PAC raised $653,510.53 in April, the Everytown for Gun Safety PAC raised $16,552.33, and the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence Voter Education Fund raised $4,015.00. The three groups combined raised $674,077.86, which is $1,178,245.42 less than the NRA.

The NRA raised the majority of their money, $1,603,469.65, from small donors who gave less than $200. The other $243,903.58 came from individuals giving more than $200. The group’s PAC spent $78,926.50 in April and ended the month with $7,618,245.50 cash on hand.

Giffords PAC spent more than it raised in April with disbursements of $668,644.29. It ended the month with $5,913,928.54 cash on hand. The Everytown PAC spent just $1,037.73 in April and ended the month with $61,133.47. Brady’s PAC spent $468.76 and had $4,454.52.
