Stephen Colbert's super PAC, Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow, is sitting on a large, intimidating pile of money, but doesn't seem to be spending any of it. In its federal filing for the month of March, the super PAC reported raising only $44,000, and spending $28,000. The most interesting part of the Colbert PAC isn't how much money is coming or going, though. It's how much is sitting in their bank account, not moving at all. Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow reported having $794,400 cash-on-hand at the end of March, which makes them richer than most other super PACs.
In contrast, Politico compares the late night host's PAC to Take Endorse Liberty, a PAC supporting Ron Paul, that drew a $1.7 million donation from Facebook investor Peter Thiel in January. They reported raising even less in March, only $13,100, and having less than $54,000 on hand.
The Colbert PAC's coffers measure up well with some of the bigger super PAC guns. The Campaign for Primary Accountability, a "shadowy" super PAC focusing on incumbents in tight races, raised more than $645,000 in March and spent nearly $800,000, but they only had $437,807 on-hand at the end of the month.
