ISRI leans Republican in donations

ISRI leans Republican in donations

By Editorial Staff, Resource Recycling

The political action committee of the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries has provided two-thirds of its donations this year to Republicans.

ISRI's PAC raised $33,000 through the end of June, and donated $22,500. The PAC sent $5,000 to the National Republican Congressional Committee and $9,000 combined to four Republican House members (Ron Desantis of Florida, George Holding of North Carolina, John Shimkus of Illinois and Lee Terry from Nebraska).

On the Senate side, the group split its donations between Tom Carper (D-DE) and David Vitter (R-LA). In nearly all cases, monies went to Representatives and Senators who are members of key environment committees.

The ISRI PAC took little risk with its funds, as only one donation went to a candidate who faces a tough race. The group provided Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ) $5,000 for use in his current race for the Senate. The six other donations to Congressional members went to electees with an average winning margin in their last race of 24 points.
