Active Republican Outside Money Groups in Montana

Montana Growth Network

The Montana Growth Network dark money group was launched in 2012 by a pair of Republican state senators. That year, it spent $900,000 on a Montana Supreme Court race.[1]

A state investigation later found that billionaires Charles Schwab and James Cox Kennedy were the group’s leading donors, and that they were also engaged in a series of legal challenges before the Montana Supreme Court. The justice supported by the Montana Growth Network voted in their favor.[2]
