GENERIC INDUSTRY RAISES FUNDS FOR CONGRESS

Published Online: Wednesday, November 1, 2006   [ Request Print ]

The political fund-raisers for the Generic Pharmaceutical Association (GPhA) collected more than $37,000 to support pro-industry candidates in the 2006 elections, according to documents on file at the Federal Election Commission.

Less than 10 weeks before Election Day, GPhA's Political Action Committee (PAC) had contributed $13,500 to the campaigns of 10 House and Senate candidates, including such supporters of the generic drug industry as Sen Edward Kennedy (D, Mass), Sen Trent Lott (R, Miss), and Sen Debbie Stabenow (D, Mich).

Although the PAC supported candidates from both parties, 70% of its money went to Republican congressional hopefuls. Also among those on the receiving end of the association's campaign aid was Rep Nathan Deal (R, Ga), the incoming chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee.
