Two of five top recipients of trucking campaign dollars drop re-election bids
For the 2018-midterm cycle, trucking industry campaign contributions again heavily favored Republican candidates, this year by a more than four-to-one margin, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics.
However, two of the top five trucking benefactors lost their bids for re-election in the U.S. House, and three won their race. The top recipient of trucking-contributed campaign dollars, incumbent Rep. Jeff Denham in California’s 10th Congressional district, appears to have barely edged his opponent, though the race hasn’t officially been decided and Denham’s Democratic opponent Josh Harder has yet to concede.
