Liberty for All Super PAC prepares major ad blitz to support Massie in 4th District race

05/08/2012 04:55 PM

The founder of the libertarian-leaning group Liberty for All Super PAC that has gotten involved in Kentucky’s 4th Congressional District race has pledged to do “whatever it takes to win the election” for GOP candidate Thomas Massie.

John Ramsey, who created the Super PAC in his hometown of Texas and has since opened an office in Bellevue, Ky., told Pure Politics that the organization will open up a call center to contact GOP voters, as well as direct mail and TV adsi (3:10 of the interview.)

PAC leader say the organization is prepared to spend as much as $600,000 in the Republican primary for the 4th Congressional District, which includes seven candidates. That would be a huge investment considering the leading fund-raiser in the race, Boone County Judge-Executive Gary Moore, collected about a quarter of a million dollars in the first three months of the race.

Ramsey talked about the philosophy and approach of the Liberty for All Super PAC (0:15) and why and how the organization picked Massie, the Lewis County judge-executive. That starts at 2:00 of the interview:

Ramsey is listed as a student on FEC documents. But he works for his family’s successful real estate and investment business in Texas. Ramsey put up the initial start-up cash for the PAC earlier this year. In addition to Massie, the organization has announced support for GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul. But Ramsey said it plans to get involved on behalf of candidates of other parties because the group is philosophy-driven and not tied to the Republican Party.

Super PACs can raise and spend unlimited money in an election on behalf of or against candidates. But, by law, they cannot coordinate with candidates’ campaigns.
