Of that amount, $10,000 is earmarked for the group's Vermont-registered super PAC, "Priorities PAC," which can legally raise and spend unlimited sums to support political candidates, so long as it does not coordinate directly with those candidates' campaigns. The remaining $15,000 will go to the main, 501c4 branch of the organization, which is limited to spending on "issue advocacy."
"We're happy to get her support," Stannard said Monday.
Stannard said Monday his group was "talking about" whether to use Steele's contribution to counteract the conservative ad buy. He said Vermont Priorities' board planned to meet Wednesday morning to discuss the group's next steps.
