The 2016 presidential race is the super PAC campaign, as we have written. For the first time, many of the likely White House contenders have embraced the big-money groups before they declare their candidacies, a maneuver that allows them to help raise unlimited donations from individuals and corporations.
One of the newest super PACs on the scene is the beefily named Unintimidated PAC, which is supporting Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. (It also happens to be run by two of his top former strategists.)
Craig Gilbert, Washington bureau chief of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, got a look at the group's high fundraising targets -- and the perks it is offering its biggest financial backers.

The top tier is a staggering $1 million, which gets you a seat on the executive board, was well as two donors retreats, private strategy briefings, a dedicated staff contact, two private dinners with a "VIP Special Guest(s)" and access to fundraising events. And, to top it off, an "Exclusive Executive Board Pin."
