Pfizer Gives $1 Million To Kentucky Republican Party To Expand Its Headquarters-


Pfizer donated $1 million to the Kentucky Republican Party in 2021 in what is being called the highest donation to a political party in state history.

The donation will be used to expand the Frankfort Mitch McConnell Building in the state capital.

The donation seems like a perfect fit.

Mitch McConnell has been a staunch supporter of the COVID vaccine and COVID legislation.

Via The Kentucky Lantern:

In what may be the largest political contribution ever given to a political party in Kentucky, the drug maker Pfizer Inc. gave $1 million last month to the building fund of the Republican Party of Kentucky.

A report filed by Republican Party of Kentucky Building Fund last week with the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance listed the $1 million from Pfizer along with five other big corporation contributions in the final quarter of 2022 totalling $1.65 million.

That is an extraordinarily large haul for the fund which had raised only $6,000 during the first three quarters of 2022
