About

PowerPAC Georgia is a state political action committee associated with PowerPAC.org, the organization that ran the largest independent expenditure campaign in the country supporting Barack Obama in the 2008 primaries, including extensive work in Georgia. It is funded by a constellation of national progressive donors, including the earliest investors in the independent efforts to support Obama in 2007.

The PowerPAC Georgia effort is directed by Marvin Randolph, President of the Southern Elections Fund, an organization founded by Julian Bond in the 1960s and then re-launched by Bond, Randolph and former NAACP President Ben Jealous. Randolph is the NAACP’s former Senior Vice President for Campaigns and organized the largest Black voter registration effort in the history of the country in 2012 when the NAACP registered 400,000 people to vote, leaving the organization with a database of 929,570 voters.
