ESA stingy with campaign money early

You probably remember -- well, that's not true -- there's an off chance you remember that ESA president Mike Gallagher announced that the organization was going to be throwing some coin behind national candidates via a political action committee, with contributions somewhere between $50,000 and $100,000 by year's end. Well, according to GamePolitics, the going has been slow so far.

The site reports that just three candidates have received money from the organization so far to the tune of $4,300 all told. They are:
  • Rep. Jim Clyburn D-SC, $1,000
  • Rep. Artur Davis D-AL, $1,000
  • Rep. Mary Bono Mack R-CA, $2,300
The small start could also be the result of slow fundraising: The PAC has garnered just six donations so far for a total of $27,500. Also of note, as of April 15 the ESA had financially backed no presidential candidates.
