WASHINGTON (AP) — The nonprofit group supporting President Barack Obama's agenda paid the president's re-election campaign nearly $700,000 during the past three months to rent the campaign's extensive list of supporters and buy equipment.
Organizing for Action was formed out of the president's campaign earlier this year. Records released Monday show the group paid the president's campaign an initial fee of $300,000 for the list of supporters and monthly fees of $87,500 to rent it.
OFA has been promoting Obama's agenda on gun control, immigration reform and climate change. The group raised more than $8 million between April and June.
Records show the group spent about $100,000 on equipment purchases from the campaign during the past three months.
