2020 ELECTION/ENDORSEMENTS: “Over two dozen corporate leaders and businesses are quietly donating to the campaigns of at least four Republicans who have pushed false claims about the 2020 election results while running to become secretaries of state, according to a review of state campaign finance disclosures.

The secretary of state candidates in Jim Marchant, Mark Finchem, Kristina Karamo and Chuck Gray — all endorsed by former President Donald Trump — have disputed the 2020 election results on the campaign trail. If elected, they could have ultimate administrative control over their states’ election processes.”
