Sarah Palin's political action committee has contributed $87K dollars in campaign contributions to candidates Palin has endorsed from April 1 and June 30 according to a documents filed on Sunday with the Federal Elections Commission.

Among those candidates are former Iowa Governor Terry Barnstad and Joe Miller who will be challenging Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski in August. Each received $5,000. Another $2,500 each went to former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina from California, and Nevada's controversial Sharron Angle who is challenging Senate majority Leader Harry Reid.

Palin entered the reporting period with more than $916,000 on hand. She received more than $865,800 in contributions, and ended the period with more than $1 million on hand, according to the filings. SarahPAC's treasurer Tim Crawford said,

"We're going to really help a lot of Republican candidates get a chance to win and "I'm glad we have the resources there for the governor to use."

And use them she did. According to a SarahPAC financial disclosure, while Plain distributed 87K to political candidates, she spent $210,000 on consulting.
