In response to the lag of the GOP in Internet fundraising compared to Democrats, ABC PAC launched RightRoots.com, the one-stop donation pail for conservatives.
The site allows donors to designate a particular national candidate their funds should be directed to. Besides emptying his wallet, the Internet savvy conservative can check up on key challenges in various slates, take a poll [freep it now -- make the Iraq War the #1 issue ahead of Immigration!], and bask in a selected bio of a featured Republican, such as Jeb Hensarling, TX-5.

ABC PAC was created by Frank Donatelli, Craig Shirley, Michael Turk, Chuck DeFeo, Jason Torchinsky and Michael Palmer. They currently serve on the PAC's Board of Directors. RightRoots About

Yep, they all look like the Token White Guy.
