JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Missouri Club for Growth Political Action Committee received a donation of $1.2 million from billionaire philanthropist and businessman Rex Sinquefield over the weekend.
“As has been the case in previous cycles, the Missouri Club for Growth PAC will be engaging in numerous House and Senate races in the lead-up to November’s election in order to maximize the number of fiscal conservatives in the state legislature,” said Missouri Club for Growth PAC spokesman Todd Abrajano.
In March, the group received $973,000.00 from Sinquefield, making the total contribution from the businessman to the group now $2,173,000.00.
The billionaire donated $2.5 million to Grow Missouri last week to assist with the 100 Great Ideas initiative led by Speaker-elect John Diehl (R-Town and Country).
Sinquefield has donated $8,198,000.00 since March to committees and candidates.
