Palin PAC donations don't include Alaska race

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) Sarah Palin's political action committee gave $40,000 to congressional candidates during the last quarter but none from Alaska.

Palin, a former Alaska governor, has not weighed in on the Republican race for U.S. Senate in the state. In 2010, she backed tea party favorite Joe Miller in a race won with a write-in campaign by incumbent Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski.

Palin's SarahPAC reported bringing in about $460,000 from April through June. She ended the period with about $970,000 on hand.

Contributions to candidates included $5,000 to Dave Brat, a donation given the day after he upset then-U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in Virginia.
