Last summer we exposed Barbara Comstock’s fondness of tweeting about her campaign donors. We are sad to report that the practice continues, with several new donor-promoting tweets in the past few weeks alone.
Let’s start off with FedEx. Not only are they super in love with the NRA, but they also donated $2,500 and $8,000 in the last two election cycles. This election cycle they’re already in for $4,000 so naturally Comstock feels the need to tweet about them.

This next tweet is a twofer, mentioning both the Loudoun Chamber and individual donor Mitch Sproul
New @LoudounChamber Chairman, Mitch Sproul of Toth Financial: “To whom much is given; much is expected. ...our Chamber work allows us to serve our community.” #VA10 #LoudounChamber50 pic.twitter.com/dGG2s5EKp7— Barbara Comstock (@RepComstock) January 27, 2018
Cummins received a nice shout out from Comstock after their Government Affairs person donated to Comstock.
Met with employees and leadership at @Cummins to discuss their innovative role in powering our trains, buses, generators, hospitals, and schools. Also discussed their workforce development program, the tax reform package, and their plans to reinvest into their employees. #VA10 pic.twitter.com/BlTqxEwN15— Barbara Comstock (@RepComstock) January 25, 2018
Thermo Fisher definitely gets a mention since they have donated in all three of her election cycles:
Good news for our hardworking families in #VA10. @thermofisher which has a plant in Middletown and employs over 300 people will be giving out bonuses and investing in R&D thanks to the tax reform bill that was passed last month https://t.co/Qyk5QgqgQs— Barbara Comstock (@RepComstock) February 1, 2018
If you donate that much money apparently Comstock will also link to your Twitter profile. Not a bad deal!
Wal-Mart has been very good to Comstock over the years as well.
For $10,000 you can get your own multi tweet thread on Twitter complete with photos!
Visited a Wal-Mart Supercenter in Dulles where their associates (350 in all) have gotten bonuses and some have received wage increases thanks to the tax reform package that passed last month. #VA10 pic.twitter.com/OHXJvxPRML— Barbara Comstock (@RepComstock) January 24, 2018
The tax reform package also provided incentives for family medical leave and, in response, Wal-Mart has extended paid maternity leave from six to ten weeks and paternity leave from two to six weeks. In addition Wal-Mart is helping financially those associates who are adopting. pic.twitter.com/kepEjUDw2H— Barbara Comstock (@RepComstock) January 24, 2018
In addition Wal-Mart is helping financially those associates who are adopting. We also visited the Wal-Mart Academy, the first within the region where they are teaching the necessary skills so associates can improve their skill sets and move up within the company. #VA10 pic.twitter.com/jvEzMvuKEu— Barbara Comstock (@RepComstock) January 24, 2018
When she is not busy tweeting out PR releases for her donors, Barbara Comstock likes to tweet about their endorsements.
Winning for Women is just another front group for billionaire GOP donors such as Paul Singer who has donated $64,250 to her various campaigns as well as writing “articles” that attack her political opponents.
