Murray to hold fundraiser for Ted Cruz in Wheeling April 6
The Hill reported earlier today that Robert Murray will be holding a local fundraiser for Ted Cruz on April 6:
Controversial coal executive Robert Murray is planning a fundraiser for Ted Cruz on April 6, though he says he isn’t endorsing the Texas senator for president.
Murray, the CEO of the Ohio-based Murray Energy Corp., said he would support the eventual Republican nominee but wants to help fill Cruz’s campaign account to keep him competitive with front-runner Donald Trump.
“I have not picked a candidate, but I do know that Ted Cruz needs some money,” Murray told The Hill from his office in St. Clairsville, Ohio, which is located directly over a coal mine. . . .
Murray is holding the event personally, and his company is not involved in any way, he emphasized. . . .
“This is all a human issue to me. That's why I'm having the fundraising event in the heart of the coal fields in Wheeling, West Virginia,” Murray said.
Murray to speak at West Liberty University April 5
Recently passed along to me was a flyer announcing that Robert Murray will be speaking at West Liberty University on April 5 from 11 until noon in College Hall. His speech is part of the Gary E. West College of Business Executive Seminar Series. If you've always wanted to hear about the evils of the EPA and the Obama administration's "political power grab of America's power grid," the speech is free.
