Reveals issue scores for potential candidates, gives Nevadans the ability to pledge to campaigns before they announce – for the first time in history
(Crowdpac) – Menlo Park, CA – On the heels of Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid’s announcement that he will not seek re-election, Crowdpac has launched a new website, giving citizens the ability to pledge money to Primary Election candidates before they even enter the race, for the first time in history.
Candidates are also assigned objective scores based on a unique system that factors in contribution and vote history. Crowdpac’s US Senate hopefuls currently include Gov. Brian Sandoval, Lt Gov. Mark Hutchison, former Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki, Attorney General Adam Laxalt, former NV GOP Chair Sue Lowden, Congressman Joe Heck, Penn Jillette, former Attorney General Catherine Cortez-Masto, Congresswoman Dina Titus, Former Assemblywoman Lucy Flores, Former Nevada State Treasurer Kate Marshall, and former Congresswoman Shelley Berkley.

Crowdpac’s unique pledge system is made possible by to a 6-0 Federal Election Commission (FEC) decision rendered in August 2014, allowing users to donate money before a candidate declares their intent to run. Only if and when a candidate chooses to run will a user’s method of payment be charged.
Crowdpac aims to make it easier for people to engage effectively in the political process by providing citizens with objective, non-partisan information about political candidates and issues. Crowdpac users are able to browse data on Congressional candidates in all 50 states, potential 2016 presidential candidates and donate directly to their campaigns.
