Our Story

As the super PAC focused on holding Republicans accountable and helping Democrats win seats in the House, House Majority PAC combines innovative new approaches with time-tested strategies to do battle with Republican outside groups and make a difference.

Formed in April 2011, House Majority PAC’s goal was to answer the barrage of GOP outside spending and ensure that never again would groups funded by Karl Rove, the Koch Brothers, Sheldon Adelson and the like be able to drown out Democratic candidates.

Over the course of the 2012 cycle, House Majority PAC built on that record of success, coordinating extensively with progressive groups to compete, fight back and elect Democrats to the House.

During the 2012 cycle, House Majority PAC spent $36 million, amassing a record that independent observers called “impressive” and “winning.” The Democrat won in 63 percent of the races in which House Majority PAC spent a significant sum. And of the 10 races in which House Majority PAC spent the most money, Democrats won eight.

After a challenging mid-term election where Democrats outperformed historical trends, the outlook in 2016 is positive for House Democrats. During the 2014 cycle, House Majority PAC spent $38 million and focused on leveraging resources and strategic investments to assist Democrats in winning 11 of 12 races that were “too close to call” on Election night. House Majority PAC’s unprecedented effort in 2014 was called “devastatingly effective” by pundits.

As House Majority PAC looks ahead, we have an ambitious plan for the 2016 cycle that will continue to push back on GOP-aligned outside groups in the fight for the House majority.
