(WASHINGTON TIMES) — The big-money vehicle intended to raise astronomical sums to serve as the Democratic counter to similar action by Republican-funded super PACs and outside groups is failing miserably, federal documents filed Monday showed.

Priorities USA Action, a super PAC that former top aides to President Obama left the White House last February to run, had only a single substantial donor last month, of $50,000.

Even that check is not a full-throated endorsement from John W. Rogers, CEO of Chicago’s Ariel Capital and a man with the means to give much more.
