Kasich superPAC gets $600K in one day, has over $11 million

Jessica Wehrman in the Washington Bureau is reporting that a super PAC set up to buy media – including television and radio ads – supporting Ohio Gov. John Kasich raised $600,000 in one day, according to documents filed with the Internal Revenue Service Thursday.

New Day for America Independent Media Inc. raised that money from two donors, both who gave June 30.

One was from Michael Downer, based in Pacific Palisades, Calif., an employee of the Capital Group. He gave $100,000. The other was from a Whitefish, Montana company called MMWP12 LLC. It gave $500,000.

The media organization is the second super PAC set up to support Kasich’s bid for president. The other – New Day for America – will report later today that it raised $11.1 million between April 20 and June 30 of this year, bringing combined super PAC support for Kasich to $11.7 million to date.
