Cornett Super PAC being funded by Clinton bundler
by Jamison Faught, MuskogeePolitico.com
A Super PAC supporting GOP gubernatorial candidate and OKC mayor Mick Cornett recently purchased $100k in television and digital ads in the Tulsa market, and a primary funder of the group was a bundler for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Sue Ann Arnall, ex-wife of oil tycoon Harold Hamm, gave $200k to the ‘Oklahoma Values’ Super PAC that is supporting Cornett’s campaign; only one other donor was listed on the last ethics report, and he gave $25k. She hosted a fundraiser at her home in September 2016 with Clinton’s running-mate, Tim Kaine.
Arnall donated at least $169,500 to the Clinton campaign in 2015-2016, as well as $2,700 to Democrat Al McAffrey’s 5th Congressional District bid.
The ad buy includes a commercial during the OU-Georgia Rose Bowl football game on January 1st. The commercial can be viewed below:
