Growth PAC was formed in 2014 with the goal of helping change our country’s direction by electing strong conservatives who share Governor Jim Gilmore’s pro-growth policies that create jobs, increase wages, and provide opportunity for all Americans.  We are organized with the Federal Election Commission as a Super PAC and can accept unlimited donations from individuals and corporations. We cannot make direct contributions to campaigns or coordinate our activities with them.  Instead we can spend unlimited amounts of money in support or opposition to a candidate.
In 2014 our independent campaign activities helped elect Joni Ernst Senator from Iowa and assisted Ed Gillespie to make his race in Virginia unexpectedly close. In 2016 we are concentrating on the battleground state of Virginia, and competitive Senate races.
