The National Congressional Club was a political organization controlled by Senator Jesse Helms (R-NC) through the mid-2000s. It was described as a "vast and sophisticated enterprise."[1] As a political fundraiser, Helms had few rivals.[1] The National Congressional Club, had "computerized lists of hundreds of thousands of contributors" and a "state-of-the-art" direct-mail operation that raised millions for Helms and other conservative candidates.[1] Almost seventy percent of its regular contributors were from outside North Carolina.[1]
