A super PAC supporting Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) reported raising $1.5 million in 2013.
The Fund for Louisiana’s Future raised $725,000 in the second half of 2013, fundraiser and attorney Charlie Spies, who is associated with the super PAC, confirmed to TPM on Wednesday. That brings the Fund’s total haul to $1.5 million with $1.3 million cash on hand.
Vitter is currently mulling running for governor later this year. In December, Vitter sent out a fundraising email where he described the support he’s gotten about the prospect of running for governor.
“Many good friends and supporters have encouraged me to run for Governor in 2015 — to bring my focus and leadership to the challenges we face as a state,” Vitter wrote in the December fundraising email.
The fundraising numbers were first reported by The Advocate.
