Which Candidates Are Energy Companies Giving Money To?

The Post-Gazette takes a look at which energy companies are contributing to Pennsylvania’s statewide races:

Range Resources of Fort Worth, Texas, donated $3,000 to a Washington County commissioner running for state treasurer. Chesapeake Energy is headquartered in Oklahoma City but gave $1,000 to an auditor general candidate who has pledged, if elected, to investigate how Pennsylvania monitors shale drilling. And Chief E&D Holdings in Dallas sent a check for $1,000 to a Cumberland County man running for Pennsylvania attorney general.

They may be small amounts, but they make one thing clear: Some of the country’s biggest energy companies are now getting involved in some of Pennsylvania’s smaller races.
