Jeb Bush Leads the Super PAC Race

Super PACs, which operate outside candidates' formal campaigns, have raised more than $250 million for 17 presidential contenders in the first six months of this year, according to fundraising reports filed with federal regulators. The super PAC supporting former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush alone raised $102 million.

The money raised this year thus far by super PACs is more than double the $125 million raised by the candidates themselves, according to disclosure reports filed with the Federal Election Commission on Friday, the deadline for super PACs to report contributions, according to The Wall Street Journal.
