JUNEAU- Sarah Palin's political action committee brought in just over $460,000 during the first half of the year, well short of prior fundraising totals for that period.

Campaign finance disclosures show Palin's SarahPAC ended June with about $1.1 million available.

Spending between January and June totaled nearly $500,000, including such things as travel, speechwriting and consulting costs. SarahPAC gave money to one candidate, $5,000 to Jason Smith, who won a June special election for a U.S. House seat from Missouri.

The total compares to the roughly $1.2 million brought in by SarahPAC during the first half of 2012 and about $1.7 million during the first half of 2011.

SarahPAC reported nearly $1.3 million in receipts for the first half of 2010 and more than $730,000 in the first half of 2009.
