A super PAC affiliated with an organization representing "women opposed to abortion extremists in Congress" is shelling out $103,000 this month to target Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Patrick Murphy in Florida.

Both Clinton and Murphy support women's abortion rights.

An independent expenditure report filed Friday with the Federal Election Commission by the Women Speak Out PAC shows the money going toward payroll, mileage and stickers and shirts for door-to-door canvassers in September.

Also Friday, the group declared similar expenditures for canvassers against Clinton and Democratic U.S. Senate candidates in two other states: Deborah Ross in North Carolina and Ted Strickland in Ohio.

The Women Speak Out PAC is a partner of the Susan B. Anthony List, a 501(c)4 political non-profit. The organization doesn't list Murphy's opponent -- incumbent Republican Sen. Marco Rubio -- as among its endorsed candidates.
