Pro-Jeb Bush super PAC crowd funding for Super Bowl ad - CBS News
The super PAC Right to Rise has already raised more than $100 million to support former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign. Now, however, the group is turning to crowd-funding to generate some more cash and more buzz ahead of the February 7 New Hampshire primary.
Specifically, Right to Rise is trying to raise $300,000 from small donors to air an ad in New Hampshire during the Super Bowl.
“We need your help to run the first-ever political ad funded by everyday Americans during the 50th anniversary of the BIGGEST sports event of the year!” the group says on its crowd-funding website.
The site notes that the Super Bowl takes place just two days before the New Hampshire primary, and it claims that 83 percent of the Granite State’s GOP primary voters will be tuning in.
There are suggested donation amounts on the site, ranging from $25 for a “super fan” to $10,000 for an “MVP.” The MVP donors are promised an invitation to an “exclusive” Super Bowl watch party in New Hampshire and VIP-level attendance at a strategy briefing with Right to Rise CEO Mike Murphy. As of Friday evening, the site had more than 160 contributors who had donated a total of more than $31,000.
