CREDO Mobile Super PAC is no longer in operation; for its successor, see CREDO Victory Fund
The CREDO Mobile Super PAC was founded in 2012 by CREDO Mobile as part of the company’s mission to support left-of-center causes. The PAC raised millions during the 2012 and 2014 election cycles. In late 2015, the CREDO Mobile Super PAC ceased operation and transferred the remaining funds to the CREDO Victory Fund. 
2012 General Election
In 2012, all of CREDO SuperPAC’s independent expenditures went toward opposing Republican candidates running for the U.S. House. In total, CREDO SuperPAC spent $764,343 attacking Republican U.S. Representatives including Allen West (R-FL), Sean Duffy (R-WI), Mike Coffman (R-CO) and Michele Bachmann (R-MN). 
The PAC also gave $250,000 to the House Majority PAC the House Democratic leadership PAC.  Working Assets Funding Service, a company associated with CREDO Mobile, received over $570,000 in in-kind contributions from CREDO SuperPAC in the form of polling, email lists, staff time, conference sponsorship, PR strategy and planning, and research.
2013 Democratic Primaries
In 2013, the CREDO SuperPAC got involved in the Democratic primary for the special election to fill the vacancy in Illinois’s 2nd congressional district after Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL) resigned from the seat. CREDO spent $22,159 against former Rep. Deborah Halvorson (D-IL) and State Senator Toi Hutchinson (D-Olympia Fields) due to their “A” ratings from the National Rifle Association.  
2014 Midterm Election
CREDO SuperPAC launched a campaign in April 2014 to help keep the Senate under Democratic control.  The campaign was aimed at grassroots organizing and hired 30 organizers in North Carolina, Colorado, Michigan, Georgia, and Kentucky which all featured potentially competitive senate races.  During the campaign’s launch, CREDO called the Senate a “firewall against the Tea Party.” 
The PAC also made it clear it would not support moderate Democrats such as Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) which CREDO labeled one of the “worst Democrats.”  During 2014, the PAC would spend over $355,000 opposing Republican candidates Cory Gardner (R-CO), Terri Lynn Land (R-MI), Mitch McConnell (R-KY), David Perdue (D-GA), and Thom Tillis (R-NC).  The CREDO SuperPAC also spent over $750,000 on canvassing programs from Progressive Campaign Leadership. 
Prominent Democratic donors made contributions to the CREDO SuperPac. Win McCormack, now the owner of the left-wing publication The New Republic, donated $125,000 to the PAC.  Michael Kieschnick, the then president and CEO of CREDO Mobile, donated over $170,000 to the PAC over both election cycles.
Patricia Bauman and her husband, John Bryant, gave $26,000 to the PAC in 2012.  Bauman is the president of the Bauman Foundation, which funds left-of-center groups such as the Brennan Center for Justice, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and Media Matters for America. 
Scott Shenker, a University of California, U.C. Berkeley professor and computer scientist, gave $200,000 to the PAC over 2012 and 2014. Shenker has given over $2,000,000 to Women Vote!, and at least $100,000 each to Priorities USA Action, AFL-CIO Workers’ Voices PAC, House Majority PAC, and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC).  Marjorie Roswell gave over $100,000 to the PAC and has donated to left-of-center groups including the League of Conservation Voters, DSCC, and MoveOn.org.  Amy Rao, the director of the environmentalist Schmidt Family Foundation, gave $11,000.
