This liberal billionaire now backing Bullock is a Mega-Donor who has already given over $16 million to Democratic candidates in 2020 alone – landing her as the sixth-highest funder in individual’s funding outside groups.
Her past support has included donations to Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff, and she even gave a cool $15 million to help Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign. Now, this liberal billionaire is laying the groundwork to get Bullock elected.
The irony should not be lost on Montanans: Bullock never wastes a moment to rail against outside money in politics, blank checks to campaigns, and super PAC spending yet he sure does benefit immensely from it!
- Bullock: “I’ve spent my entire career fighting to get Big Money out of politics, and I’m not going to back down now.” (The Hill, 10/29/2019)
- Bullock: “That’s why we need to defeat Donald Trump in 2020, and defeat the corrupt system that lets campaign money drown out the people’s voice.” (MTN News, 05/14/2019)
- Bullock: “Democrats need to focus on getting Big Money OUT of our elections, regardless of how it impacts their campaign.” (Washington Free Beacon, 04/30/2020)
So, while Bullock lectures us about the dangers of Big Money and the need to get it out of politics, he’s benefiting from a $100,000 check. Perhaps the most honest thing that Bullock ever said was you can “never trust a politician” … and that sure is the case here.
