PrintPAC Announces Endorsements for 2001-2002 Election Cycle

Press release from the issuing company

PrintPAC, the political action committee for the Printing Industries of America has announced its endorsements for the 2001-2002 election cycle. These endorsements only include federal (U. S. House and Senate) elections. Ben Cooper, Treasurer of PrintPAC and Executive Vice President for PIA made the announcement following a recent round of endorsements and contributions. "This has been a tough financial period for the U. S. printing industry. Financial challenges in the industry made it more difficult to raise the funds necessary to compete in as many races as we would have hoped. Regardless, printers around the country supported PrintPAC at a level where we were able to participate in approximately 60 House and Senate races. I am confident that the activities of PIA members will make a difference in the election and the 108th Congress which convenes in January," Cooper said. He added, "While there are many fine House races in the country, PrintPAC focused heavily on Senate races this year. We believe the Senate is where business can make the greatest gains in the 108th Congress." PrintPAC Endorsements PrintPAC contributions are in parentheses. These endorsements do not represent all of the contributions made by PrintPAC in 2001-2002. Some contributions are made to Senate candidates "out of cycle" meaning those who are not up for reelection in 2002. Also, very limited amounts of money are contributed to "leadership" pacs for members of the House and Senate. PrintPAC has also made minimal contributions to candidates who were defeated in a primary. PrintPAC has only announced endorsements for candidates who have received PrintPAC contributions. We do not make general endorsements. However, we would be pleased to provide a review of other races upon request. ALABAMA Sen. Jeff Sessions-R ($2,000) Rep.
