Family of Slain Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry Starts Secure Border Super PAC

An uncle of slain U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry - along with the Brian Terry Foundation - started a new Super PAC this week to influence Congressional elections.  The new Brian Terry Secure Border Project PAC filed its federal paperwork out of Phoenix on Tuesday.

Terry was killed in a shootout on the Arizona side of the U.S.-Mexico border in 2010, and drew attention to the gun-walking program-turned-scandal known as Fast and Furious.  Terry's family formed the Brian Terry Foundation, and this new Super PAC effort involves many of the same people.

Uncle Ralph Terry is listed in the paperwork as the Treasurer of the new Super PAC, which can accept unlimited contributions and can make independent expenditures in Congressional races.

There does not appear to be a website up for the Super PAC at this time.  Arizona's Politics has inquired about further information, and will supplement if more information becomes available.
