Senate Majority PAC was founded by experienced, aggressive Democratic strategists with one mission: To win Senate races.
In 2010, the Citizens United decision allowed Karl Rove and a network of Republican-aligned outside groups to raise and spend hundreds of millions of dollars on false negative ads against Democratic Senators and Senate candidates. Democrats only engaged in outside spending in a few races, resulting in lopsided TV advertising that overwhelmed our candidates and contributed to some crushing Democratic losses in 2010.
In the face of that threat, Senate Majority PAC formed in 2011 to make sure that our Democratic Senators and candidates would not be forced to face such overwhelming odds against them again. Running transparent, low-overhead, take-no-prisoners independent campaigns, we defend Democrats from attacks by Rove and the Koch Brothers, aggressively contest open Senate seats, and go after Republicans on their own turf.
