Five Dem Senators Won’t Take Corporate PAC Money

The Washington Examiner reports:

Sen. Cory Booker announced late Tuesday that he will no longer accept campaign contributions from political action committees of for-profit companies, following the example of some of his fellow Democrats.

Booker accepted $1.8 million from business PACs from 2013-2018, according to Open Secrets, which tracks campaign contributions. Booker became the fifth U.S. senator to reject corporate PAC money; he was preceded Tuesday by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.

Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., have also pledged to reject corporate PAC contributions. Booker, Gillibrand, Sanders, and Warren have been floated as possible 2020 presidential candidates.
