Incumbents Rake In Corporate PAC Money

Check out these detailed numbers on incumbent corporate PAC contributions

Republicans incumbents in some of the most competitive House races in the country have raked in hundreds of thousands in corporate PAC money. As we previously posted in Special Interest 101: How to Calculate Corporate PAC Money, there’s not currently a public website that has this information available for the entire careers of politicians. Maplight has this excellent breakdown of corporate PAC money taken by candidates in the 2018 election cycle.

While there’s a movement among Democratic House challengers to reject corporate PAC money, some of Washington’s politicians who are responsible for rigging the system to favor their donors have taken hundreds of thousands, even millions, from corporate PACs. Here are career corporate PAC money numbers for five of those incumbents. Next week, we will continue to shine a light on the corporate PAC money other of other incumbents who are stacking the deck for the special interests, while making the American people pay the price.

Rep. Mike Bishop (MI-08): $1.12 million

Rep. Dave Brat (VA-07): $180,000

Rep. Mike Coffman (CO-06): $1.8 million

Rep. Dan Donovan (NY-11): $447,000

Rep. Tom MacArthur (NJ-03): $840,000

Rep.Claudia Tenney (NY-22): $360,000
