Kent Conrad Has Contributed $386,000 To Democrat Senate Candidates
According to The Hill, Senator Kent Conrad is #2 among Democrat Senators spending money to get more Democrats elected:
Twelve of the DSCC’s 22 biggest donors this cycle are Democratic senators, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.
The biggest donor is Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii), whose Dan 10 fundraising committee gave $600,000 to the committee through the end of May.
Second on the list is retiring Sen. Kent Conrad (D-N.D.), who gave $386,000 from his Friends of Kent Conrad campaign fund.
“I was helped to get elected by the DSCC, so I’ve always been helpful to it, and we have a lot of close races and a lot of people who I believe in who are up for reelection, and I want to do everything I can to help them,” said Conrad.
Among the liberals Conrad is supporting is “independent” Senator Bernie Sanders who caucuses with the Democrats but is an avowed socialist. The Friends of Kent Conrad is one of Sanders’ top 20 contributors.
And here we thought Senator Conrad was some sort of a moderate Democrat all these years.Tags: bernie sanders, Kent Conrad, North Dakota News
