NeurosurgeryPAC Update

NeurosurgeryPAC thanks its supporters for contributing this year — especially during this time of crisis and uncertainty. As of Oct. 12, the PAC has raised $407,564 for the two-year 2020 election cycle. This includes contributions from a fundraising drive during recent meetings of the Council of State Neurosurgical Societies and the AANS/CNS Section on Disorders of the Spine and Peripheral Nerves, which yielded more than $50,000 in a single weekend. Despite these efforts, the PAC is still $93,500 shy of reaching its $500,000 fundraising goal. To make your 2020 contribution, use the online donation option by logging into, going to the online fundraising website or texting “AANSPAC” to 71777.

NeurosurgeryPAC continues to contribute to candidates who will help advance organized neurosurgery’s 2020 Legislative & Regulatory Agenda. During the third quarter, NeurosurgeryPAC made additional contributions to the following members of Congress and candidates who support organized neurosurgery’s policy priorities. Candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives include Reps. Lou Correa (D-Calif.); Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.); Roger Marshall, MD, (R-Kan.); Richard Neal (D-Mass.); Kim Schrier, MD, (D-Wash.); Steve Stivers (R-Ohio); and candidate Rich McCormick, MD, (R-Ga.). Candidates for the U.S. Senate include Sens. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.).
