Huck PAC gave $11,500 to state and congressional candidates in South Carolina, including $1,000 each to incumbent Rep. Joe Wilson and House candidates Jeff Duncan, Mick Mulvaney and Trey Gowdy, said J. Hogan Gidley, the group’s executive director.

Meanwhile, Dick Morris, the former Clinton political adviser who turned his back on Democrats and embraced conservatives, has stepped into the U.S. Senate race in Nevada to help Republican candidate Sharron Angle raise money.

Mrs. Angle is trying to unseat incumbent Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid, who is on track to raise $25 million, an unprecedented amount in the state, compared with Mrs. Angle’s roughly $1.2 million through May 19, according to federal records.

“The campaign in Nevada to replace Harry Reid is in a desperate situation and needs your help,” Mr. Morris writes in an e-mail solicitation for the Las Vegas-based Americans for New Leadership, which was formed last week and began airing television ads critical of Mr. Reid.
