The Home Depot founder is going all in on former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens for Missouri's open U.S. Senate seat in 2022.
As reported by Fox Business, Home Depot Founder Bernie Marcus has put $1 million behind former Gov. Eric Greitens in the 2022 U.S. Senate race in Missouri, Missouri First Action told Fox News. Marcus gave the donation to Missouri First Action in order for the organization to purchase media supporting Greitens' Senate campaign.
"Mr. Marcus’ generous contribution shows the broad support behind Eric Greitens," Brandon Wear, a spokesman for Missouri First Action, said in a statement first provided to Fox News. "With Americans suffering amid crisis after crisis brought on by the reckless, far-left policies of Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden, putting Missouri -and America- first has never been more important."
"As Governor, Eric Greitens proved himself to be a conservative outsider capable of delivering results for the Show-Me State," Wear added. "Now, running to serve as the next Senator from Missouri, he stands head and shoulders above the rest of the field, and Missouri First Action stands ready to support him."
In 2016, Marcus donated over $7 million to President Trump's campaign efforts-- making him one of the President's top donors.
As reported by the Washington Examiner, President Trump's pollster recently found that Greitens holds a massive lead of 30 points in the 2022 GOP primary for the US Senate— a lead which increases when voters are told of his vow to vote against reelecting Mitch McConnell as Republican leader.
