For every $1 donated to Republicans in the 2020 Election, Texas A&M employees donated $7.59 to Democrats.
Since election law prohibits organizations from making political contributions from their treasuries, one must look at the contributions from people associated with the institution to gauge its political persuasion. The Federal Election Commission requires disclosure of the donor’s employer and occupation if they contribute more than $200.
Contributions to Democratic Party candidates from Texas A&M employees totaled $425,742 compared with $56,053 for Republicans. Joe Biden was the top recipient of funds with a total of $133,062.
The last time A&M employees donated significantly more to Republican candidates was in the election of 2000.
Brazos County voters continue to support Republican presidential candidates by a wide margin.
