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.

Shortly after its formation, House Majority PAC helped make support for the Ryan budget a central issue in a special election in a Republican district in upstate New York, ensuring a Democratic upset. Then House Majority PAC swung into action in southern Arizona, helping keep Gabby Giffords’ former Congressional district in Democratic hands with TV spots termed “most memorable” and “devastatingly effective.”

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.

As we look toward 2014 and beyond, House Majority PAC is committed to building a long-term organization that will continue to take on Republican outside groups in the fight for the House majority.
