Quiz: The super PAC name game

Soon, we can expect an influx of ads and campaign mailers from “independent expenditure committees,” otherwise known as super PACs. A ­potential new law, passed by the Senate this week, would impose stricter disclosure requirements on super PAC ­donors. But it probably won’t change the trend of vague PAC names that barely suggest what those donors are working for (or against).

We’ve pulled some of the most ambiguous names from recent election cycles. Test your intuitive skills by matching the super PAC with its beneficiary.

  • Marty Walsh, Mayor of Boston

  • Steve Grossman, gubernatorial candidate

  • Judith Flanagan Kennedy, mayor of Lynn

  • Mike Ross, Boston mayoral candidate

  • Bill Walczak, Boston mayoral candidate
