CONFIRMED: Gianforte's Finance Report Shows Him Dumping Massive Fortune into His Campaign
New Jersey multimillionaire Greg Gianforte's April Campaign Finance Report shows he dumped $200,000 of his personal fortune into his campaign, in an attempt to buy the governor's office to give a huge tax break to himself and his millionaire buddies at the expense of middle-class families. Gianforte has spent months dodging reporter questions about whether he would be funding his own campaign.
"Just when we thought the Copper Kings were a thing of the past, in walks New Jersey multimillionaire Greg Gianforte," said Jason Pitt, a spokesperson for the Montana Democratic Party. "Instead of answering questions from voters or being honest with Montanans about his positions on the issues, Gianforte would rather dump his own fortune into his campaign and try to buy the governor's office to give a huge tax break to himself and his millionaire buddies at the expense of middle-class families."
60% of the money to Gianforte's campaign this reporting period came from his own checkbook.
Gianforte's campaign finance report shows he dumped $200,000 of his personal fortune into his campaign, in order to pay for expensive TV ads that mislead Montanans about his past. To date, Gianforte has given a total of $271,947.75 to his campaign.
