Sarah Palin's PAC Raises $2.1 Million in 2009

In spite of the fact that Governor Palin spent the last half of 2009 writing her book and promoting it and did little active fundraising, SarahPAC raised $2.1 million last year, of which $1.4 million was raised during the last 6 months of the year.

According to Chris Cillizza at the Washington Post (h/tp C4P):

"We are thrilled," said Palin senior adviser Meg Stapleton about the fundraising total. "Common sense Americans know the direction we need to take this country and that Sarah Palin will be instrumental in taking us there this year."

For the year, Palin raised roughly $2.1 million through Sarah PAC and ended the year with $900,000 in the bank. She donated $64,600 to candidates and party committees....

Sarah PAC sent no direct mail -- a potential treasure trove of small-dollar donations for the former governor who is beloved by the grassroots of the party -- and raised the majority of her money via the Internet and small events. For the 11 months that Sarah PAC has existed, she has received contributions from more than 14,000 donors....

"We are excited as we feel that we've just begun to tap the Governor's support," said Sarah PAC treasurer Tim Crawford.
