By one metric, J.D. Vance could be considered the favorite among CEOs of S&P 500 companies. That’s because the Ohio Republican has attracted more money from current or recent S&P 500 chief executives than any other candidate engaged in a competitive 2022 Senate race, according to a MarketWatch analysis.
The venture capitalist and “Hillbilly Elegy” author has received a total of $45,800. The funds come from TransDigm Group
CEO Kevin Stein and former Cintas
CEO Scott Farmer who have given $25,000 and $20,800, respectively, of their own money to Vance Victory, a joint fundraising committee. The table below shows the five candidates in competitive Senate contests who have raised the most from S&P 500
CEOs. After Vance, incumbent Democratic senators get the next four spots, with Colorado’s Michael Bennet at No. 2 with $37,600, followed by New Hampshire’s Maggie Hassan, Georgia’s Raphael Warnock and Nevada’s Catherine Cortez Masto.The 5 Senate candidates in competitive races getting the most money from S&P 500 CEOs
