The Presidential Victory Committee was an "independent expenditure" (I.E.) project of conservative activist Floyd G. Brown in the run up to the 1992 presidential election.[1] In November 1988, Brown was the creator of the related Citizens United.[2]

In 1992, the Committee was headed by David N. Bossie, its executive director.[3]

Americans for Bush

"Four years ago [in 1988], these conservative ideologues called themselves 'Americans for Bush'; this time they're the 'Presidential Victory Committee'," Michael Kramer wrote April 20, 1992, in TIME Magazine.[4]

Citizens United for a Bush Agenda

A version of the Committee project Citizens for Bush—George H.W. Bush—currently exists as Citizens United for the Bush Agenda[5], a project of Citizens United.[6]
