ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Sarah Palin’s political action committee ended 2010 with more than $1.3 million cash on hand, according to financial forms filed Wednesday with the federal government.

The disclosures filed with the Federal Election Commission show Sarah PAC raised more than $275,000 in the last six weeks of 2010. Those donations, mostly smaller amounts, came from 607 donors scattered across the country.

The PAC raised more than $3.5 million in 2010, and handed out $463,500 to candidates and political causes.

Tim Crawford, the PAC’s treasurer, told the Associated Press in an e-mail he was “very happy with cash on hand and very happy with our results this cycle.”

The PAC report noted two checks were never cashed, one for $2,500 to the campaign of Rep. Michele Bachmann, Minnesota Republican, and another for $5,000 to U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman, Colorado Republican.

Mr. Crawford surmised the checks might have been lost in the mail, and he stopped payment on them.

The PAC’s more than $200,000 operating disbursements in the last six weeks of the year were for such things as media and issue consulting, speech writing, travel expenses and legal fees.

Mrs. Palin, a former Alaska governor and the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate, has said she is considering running for president in 2012.
