Rick Perry wants to use money left over from his failed presidential bid to form a political action committee supporting other candidates.
Perry's campaign has written to the Federal Election Commission asking about forming a PAC or super PAC.
A PAC would allow Perry to raise up to $5,000 from individual donors. Super PACs don't impose contribution limits.
The letter says Perry raised $270,000 for the general presidential election and now is asking donors if that money can be transferred to a PAC since he didn't win the Republican nomination.
