Another Out-of-State Special Interest Group Rosendale is Counting on: Mitch McConnell’s Senate Leadership Fund

Helena – If anyone is wondering whether or not wealthy East Coast developer Matt Rosendale would be a rubber stamp for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, just look at the money McConnell’s super PAC, the Senate Leadership Fund, has dumped into Montana.

So far this cycle, the Senate Leadership Fund has spent $55,000 in Montana, and it’s probably safe to expect them and their allies continue to flood the state as a last-ditch effort to prop up Rosendale as he suffers scandal after scandal after scandal.

Rosendale’s opposition to transparency in our elections is lockstep with Mitch McConnell’s stance on campaign finance reform. A few days ago, McConnell praised a United States Treasury decision to allow some politically active non-profit groups to hide their high-dollar donors. The decision will make the dark money flooding our elections even darker. And just like his party boss, Rosendale has also consistently voted against transparency in campaign finance and against requiring dark money groups to disclose their donors and campaign spending.

With Rosendale’s lack of Montana support, he’s counting on out-of-state donors like the Senate Leadership Fund to prop up his campaign—but what are these out-of-staters counting on Rosendale to do for them?
