Conservative Democrats’ dark money-funded rural voter project has everything to do with sinking Medicare for All

Two conservative former Democratic senators, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Donnelly of Indiana, have launched the One Country Project, a 501(c)(4) not-for-profit organization that aims to attract rural voters to the Democratic Party. However, according to Maplight’s Andrew Perez, working in partnership with The Intercept, the organization is also a “dark money” group, using the two former lawmakers to push an anti-Medicare-for-all agenda.

Perez found that “the One Country Project’s website is registered to an executive at Forbes Tate Partners, a lobbying and public relations firm founded by former Clinton administration officials.” Forbes Tate Partners is leading lobbying efforts for Partnership for America’s Health Care Future (PAHCF), which, according to Maplight, is a “health industry-backed nonprofit created to crush momentum for a comprehensive universal health care system.”

1. I don't mean this to "trash" the former members, but as something to look into.

I never seem to get that line not to cross right. But I post this so people might be aware of things like this.

2. I just wish this hadn't come from

the Intercept. Glen Greenwald is not a friend of the democrats or resistance.
