“The FEC filing for Clinton’s PAC showed that Onward Together doled out thousands of dollars to 42 Democrat Candidates in May and June, including three Iowans that will be in tough and longshot elections against Republicans,” Breitbart News reported.
“The filings showed Clinton gave $2,500 to incumbent Rep. Cindy Axne, the last remaining congressional Democrat from Iowa who Republicans are going after. Republicans state Sen. Zach Nunn had a “decisive” primary win in Iowa’s Third Congressional District to take on Axne, and party-goers are hoping he will be able to unseat her,” it added.
For me, one of the best antidotes to feeling discouraged is supporting people who are running for office. I’m so proud that Onward Together has endorsed 50 candidates and counting in 2022—including some who have worked on my campaigns over the years. 🧵

Clinton has not been secret about her influence in the midterms, noting in a Twitter post she is “proud” of endorsing 50 candidates nationwide in 2022.
The news shows Clinton may not be running for office but is clearly still involved in the left’s politics during the midterms.
