NeurosurgeryPAC Continues Fundraising and Candidate Support

As of May 11, the PAC has raised $103,932 in contributions from neurosurgeons across the country. Thanks to all our contributors! These funds will enable NeurosurgeryPAC to use these contributions in a manner that best advances organized neurosurgery's policy agenda. While we understand the COVID-19 crisis is stressing neurosurgical practices, we hope neurosurgeons will nevertheless consider contributing to NeurosurgeryPAC, which is easier than ever. To make your 2020 contribution, use the online donation option by logging into, accessing the online fundraising website or texting “AANSPAC” to 71777.

The NeurosurgeryPAC board of directors recently met and approved contributions for two physicians currently running for the U.S. House of Representatives. William S. Clifford, MD, an ophthalmologist, is a candidate for Kansas’ first Congressional district. Vying for Georgia’s 7th Congressional district, is emergency physician Richard McCormick, MD, MBA. These two physicians support organized neurosurgery’s priority issues and will prove to be collaborative additions to the U.S. Congress.

NeurosurgeryPAC is a nonpartisan political action committee and does not base its decisions on party affiliation, but instead focuses on the voting records and campaign pledges of candidates.
