Speaker Paul Ryan's PAC will make its largest one-time transfer of the year, giving $715,000 to 143 members of the GOP House Majority for their 2018 campaigns, an aide told Axios:

  • Each of the 143 members will get $5,000 from the Speaker, who raised $44 million last year — a record for a House Speaker in an off-year.
  • Over 140 GOP House chiefs are invited over to Team Ryan's office this morning, where they can pick up the checks and enjoy coffee and bagels.
