Keep your eyes on a new super-PAC formed to support conservative candidates in North Carolina. Justice for All N.C. filed last month as a tax-exempt independent expenditure committee.
But just who it plans to support remains unknown. Organizers are still in the early stages and not ready to comment publicly, says Amy Ellis, the group’s treasurer.
Ellis is the sister of former Republican gubernatorial candidate Patrick Ballantine. She was also assistant treasurer with Vote for Marriage N.C. , the group that spearheaded the successful Amendment One campaign against same-sex marriage in May.
Super-PACs can raise and spend unlimited amounts of money to elect or defeat candidates, so long as they don’t coordinate their efforts with the campaigns.
Ellis is a certified public accountant with her own firm in Creedmoor.
