Republicans count on millionaires to overthrow the Senate

Mr. McCormick, Mr. Hovde and Mr. Sheehy will all face questions about their commitments to the states they seek to represent in the Senate. Mr. McCormick's home in Connecticut was the main point of attack in 2022 when he lost the Republican primary to Mehmet Oz for a vacant Senate seat in Pennsylvania.

Mr. Hovde grew up in Wisconsin, attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison and counts Madison as his home. But his ties to California will be at the heart of the Democratic case against him.

Mr. Sheehy appears to be a dream candidate for Montana, but facing Mr. Tester, a flathead farmer from Big Sandy, Mont., his recent arrival in the state could prove to be a problem. He grew up in Shoreview, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis, in a multimillion-dollar lakefront home, attended a private prep school, and then the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, before to be discharged from the army with a Bronze Star. and a purple heart. He moved to Bozeman, Montana, in 2014 and founded Bridger Aerospace and Ascent Vision Technologies, the latter of which he sold for $350 million in 2020.

Republicans involved in the election campaigns say they have many arguments to counter these accusations, at least to cover their tracks: $1.3 million co-ownership in Washington, D.C., which Ms. Baldwin purchased with her partner, Maria Brisbane, in 2021; Mr. Tester’s growing net worth; and family lobbying ties linked to Mr. Casey.

As for their standard-bearer, Mr. Trump, his rush to raise hundreds of millions of dollars in the coming days to meet the judgment against him for corporate fraud raises questions not about how he made his money , but on his ability to earn money. keep it.

His campaign, facing countless financial pressures amid mounting legal bills stemming from criminal charges against him, struggles to raise funds.
