The Price of One Legislator

On the buying of Bauchus, Montana News MIKE DENNISON says : We’re talking about the health insurance industry and the health industry, which is HMOs, hospitals, physicians, pharmaceutical companies—that’s probably where the bulk of his money has come from. The report that we prepared showed, out of about almost $15 million he’s raised in the last six years, both for his campaign and his leadership PAC, 23 percent of that came from insurance and health interests, and about 18 percent of that was from the health sector and a large amount from pharmaceutical—not the companies, but people who work for pharmaceutical companies and pharmaceutical PACs, about $830,000 just from that sector alone. The total amount was about $3.4 million, which we believe is probably more than any other member has received.
