Candidates Who Have Returned Tobacco Money

We applaud candidates and legislators who either inadvertently or purposefully accepted campaign contributions from tobacco companies and then sent it back. We think it sends a powerful message to return the check from this industry that causes so much disease, death and financial ruin in our state. We would like to thank these candidates and encourage any other candidates who have accepted tobacco money to return the money. We will happily remove that individual from the “Challenge Rejected” column and highlight their courageous decision here, as long as the contribution and return of the money take place in the same election cycle.
