2022 Midterms: PA university employees are donating overwhelmingly to Democrats
The proposed map is not finalized, but FiveThirtyEight reports that three congressional districts will likely be “highly competitive seats.”
Campus Reform analyzed employee political donations from 10 leading Pennsylvania universities during the current election cycle, the last twelve months, from February 2, 2021, to February 2, 2022.
Out of a total of $592,660.077 in donations, 96.85% of all donations went to Democratic candidates or PACS, while 3.15% went to Republican campaigns or PACs, according to Federal Election Commission data.
Below is a breakdown of those donations by institution. Each entry also specifies which congressional district the universities reside in, as well as the political leaning of that district.
All district ratings are taken from Cook Political Report’s 2021 Voter Partisan Index, which measures Democratic (D) and Republican (R) leaning.
