U.S. Sen. John Barrasso’s campaign committee has raised almost $3 million in 2017, according to the committee’s most recent filing with the Federal Election Commission. Of that money, only $66,225 — around 2.2 percent — appears to come from the state he represents.
In the first three quarters of 2017, Barrasso’s campaign committee, called Friends of John Barrasso, raised around $1.6 million from individual contributions, and a little more than $1.17 million from Political Action Committees.
WyoFile found just $58,725 from Wyoming individuals, and $7,500 from Wyoming-based PACs in this year’s fundraising. On March 13, the Making Business Excel PAC gave $5,000 to Friends of John Barrasso. The PAC is based in Cheyenne, according to the FEC. The PAC is affiliated with U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi, who is not up for reelection in 2018. More recently on Sep. 6, the Cowboy PAC, of Wilson, gave Barrasso’s campaign $2,500.
