Republican Women for Progress is a super PAC created in 2016 by former Republican political activists to support Democratic candidates for federal public office. The organization uses Crowdpac, a Democratic Party PAC fundraising service that has barred Republican Party PACs from using its services.
As of October 2018, the PAC has spent over $308,000 in support of Democratic politicians in Michigan, Kentucky, and New Jersey in the 2018 midterm election cycle.1 According to an October 19, 2018 article in the Washington Free Beacon, Republican Women for Progress has received funding from a single Democratic donor, Reid Hoffman.2
