Associated PressApril 12, 2012 

JUNEAU -- Sarah Palin's political action committee spent more money than it raised during the first three months of the year.

According to a filing Wednesday with the Federal Election Commission, Palin's SarahPAC raised about $386,400 from January through March and spent about $418,400.

The contribution level is among the lowest reported by the PAC in a quarterly filing.

Much of the money raised went toward consultants, plus fundraising and compliance. No money was given to candidates.

The report also shows $4,500 for a deposit for space at the Channelside Bay Mall in Tampa, Fla., and about $19,000 for video creation.

There were no immediate details on the reserved space at the mall. The Republican National Convention is planned for Tampa this summer.
