Evan McMullin doesn’t want you to know who his donors are.
The failed Never Trump presidential candidate has stayed in the public eye as a sort of attack dog against President Trump and other Republicans, while keeping secret the names of the donors paying him to do so.
McMullin’s recently founded non-profit organization, Stand Up Republic, jumpedinto the Alabama Senate race this week with a $500,000 ad buy against Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. One of the ads features a man saying Roy Moore “makes Republicans and us Christians look bad.”
The massive ad buy “may end up being one of the largest third-party interventions in the state,” according to the Washington Post.
McMullin’s ad campaign against Moore comes as President Trump and the Republican National Committee have jumped back into the campaign on Moore’s behalf.
At his rally Friday night in nearby Pensacola, Florida, Trump told Alabama Republicans to “go out and vote” for Moore. The Post reported McMullin’s massive ad buy the same day.
