Senate Republican Campaign Committee

About: The Senate Republican Campaign Committee (SRCC) s the caucus committee of Michigan's Senate Republicans. The Senate GOP uses the committee to raise money to spend on races across the state.

During the 2015-2016 election cycle, SRCC raised $2.1 million, making it the third most active political committee in Michigan over that two-year period. In the two-year period leading up to the 2014 election, SRCC raised $2.5 million. SRCC spends a large portion of its money on advertisements in competitive Senate districts.

Under Michigan's campaign contribution limits, caucus committees, like SRCC, can receive up to $40,000 from an individual donor per calendar year.
