Q4: Corporate PACs Continue to Prop Up Sen. McConnell

Senator Mitch McConnell, a Big Money 20 incumbent, received a total of $328,900 from corporate PACs in Q4

In 2019, McConnell received over $1 million from corporate PACs

In the fourth quarter of 2019, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) took $328,900 from corporate PACs, including $27,500 from Big Pharma and $27,600 from health care industry PACs. Over the course of 2019, McConnell took a whopping total of over $1 million from corporate PACs. Senator McConnell’s reliance on corporate PACs underscores his campaign’s lack of support from Kentuckians and his dependence on corporate special interests.

“Senator McConnell has worked to advance corporate special interests in Washington over Kentuckians. Now, in the midst of a tough reelection, McConnell is relying on them to boost his flailing campaign. Kentuckians know these contributions are why their voices are not heard in Washington,” said End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller.

ECU’s Big Money 20 campaign is focused on holding incumbents who benefit most from the corrupt establishment in Washington accountable by showing voters how politicians put corporate special interest donors ahead of the people they’re supposed to represent.

ECU is a traditional political action committee (PAC) with more than four million members, including 29,500 in Kentucky.
