 Republican Congressman Steve Pearce on Monday asked for a refund of $10,000 that his campaign donated to launch a conservative political action committee.

Pearce's decision came after the chairwoman of the Dona Ana County Democratic Party alleged that the congressman's contribution was illegal under federal campaign law.

Todd Willens, a spokesman for Pearce's re-election campaign, said a letter seeking return of the money had been sent to the political committee Goal WestPac.
