Highway 31, a mysterious super PAC that backed Democratic candidate Doug Jones and was the largest independent spender in the Alabama Senate race, spent millions attacking Roy Moore throughout the campaign season. But unlike other campaign spenders, the particular group refused to disclose who the donors were behind its multi-million ad buy until after Election Day.

On Wednesday, it was revealed the PAC was heavily funded by the Democratic Senate Majority PAC, a group solely dedicated to building a Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate.

Chris Hayden, spokesman for the Senate Majority PAC, told the Associated Press on Tuesday the group “predominantly funded” the Highway 31 PAC, which sent out advertising and mailings to help defeat Republican Moore.

The PAC spent roughly $6 million in Alabama, according to Hayden.
