Republican AG Candidate Funneled Thousands To Elect Democrats, Records Show

A Republican running for attorney general in Oklahoma has contributed roughly $10,000 to 11 Democratic candidates for state and federal office since 2004, including President Joe Biden, according to records reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Gentner Drummond, a Tulsa attorney and wealthy businessman facing Attorney General John O’Connor in the general election, has a history of financially backing Democrats, Federal Election Commission (FEC) and Oklahoma Ethics Commission records show.

Drummond, who also ran in 2018 for attorney general, refunded his $1,000 contribution to Biden’s presidential campaign in 2020 nine days after it was issued, according to FEC records. FEC records also show Drummond contributed $1,000 to candidate Matt Silverstein in his 2014 campaign to unseat Republican Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe, and $1,450 to candidate John Olson in his 2012 race for Oklahoma’s 1st congressional district.

Drummond gave $2,500 combined to former Democratic Oklahoma Rep. Dan Boren in 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2010, according to FEC data, and $1,000 to former Democratic Oklahoma Rep. Brad Carson in 2004. His contributions to state Democrats, some of which are also from his wife, add up to roughly $3,500, according to state records.
