Gianforte Dumps Another $500,000 into Campaign to Force Dangerous Agenda Onto Montanans
New Jersey Multimillionaire’s Personal Contributions Now Exceeds Unprecedented $5.8 Million
New Jersey multimillionaire Greg Gianforte has dumped another $500,000 of his personal fortune into his campaign to buy Montana’s election and force his dangerous agenda onto Montana voters.
Gianforte’s personal campaign contributions now total an unprecedented $5,821,385 million. 74% of Gianforte's campaign's contributions came directly from his own checking account.
“Greg Gianforte is a modern-day Copper King who is using his personal fortune to mislead Montanans and force his dangerous agenda onto us,” said Jason Pitt a spokesperson for the Montana Democratic Party. "Montana isn’t for sale, and another personal check from Greg Gianforte doesn’t change the fact that he lobbied to impose a statewide sales tax on hard-working Montana families and sued to eliminate a public stream access point.”
In addition to spending more than $5.8 million of his personal fortune, Gianforte also opposes the bipartisan Disclose Act. A court this week upheld the legislation, which Bullock says shines light on dark money organizations.
