Now that Rick Perry has turned off the dim lights of his presidential campaign, there remains the problem of what to do with the millions of dollars he and related super PACs raised. It’s clear that at least one of his donors fully expects Perry’s PACs to refund him.


The son of one top donor to the PAC, Doug Deason, said his father – tech magnate Darwin Deason – anticipates that contributions will be returned and the committee, dubbed the Opportunity and Freedom PAC, will shutter.

Deason contributed $5 million to the super PAC according to reports.

“We have made it clear we expect the PAC to shut down and send the funds back,” he said.
