GOP lawmakers faced growing backlash on Monday from companies that said they would cut off campaign contributions to those who voted last week to challenge electoral votes from contested states.
100 Percent Fed Up – The announcements by Amazon.com Inc, General Electric Co, Dow Inc, AT&T Inc, Comcast Corp, Verizon Communications Inc, American Express Co, Airbnb Inc, Cisco Systems Inc, Best Buy Co Inc, and Mastercard Inc, among others, threaten to throttle fundraising resources for Republicans.
AT&T and Comcast, for example, are among the biggest corporate donors in Washington.
Greeting-card giant Hallmark Company Ltd said it had asked senators Josh Hawley and Roger Marshall to return its contributions.
UPDATE: Dow (@DowNewsroom), the massive chemical company, tells me it will not donate to any member of Congress that objected to the certification of the presidential vote
