Comments Off on Zinke Campaign Misses Financial Disclosure Deadline Again | 406 Politics


GOP congressional candidate Ryan Zinke has yet to file his updated financial disclosure report, after missing the deadline by more than a month.

His Democratic opponent for the new US West District in Montana, Missoula attorney Monica Tranel, filed the required documents last month. It was due May 16. Its financial disclosure shows slight increases in its assets and salaries compared to its previous report, filed last November.

Zinke, a former congressman who earlier this month won a close primary race to become the Republican nominee, also missed the previous financial disclosure deadline. His campaign filed the report later that month following media requests.

Campaign spokeswoman Heather Swift said last week that the campaign plans to submit its 2022 financial disclosure report on Monday.

“Lost track of the deadline,” Swift said in a text message last week.

On Monday, Swift noted that Congress was closed for the federal recess — since Juneteenth fell on Sunday — when asked if the campaign still plans to file Zinke’s 2022 financial disclosure. She did not respond to questions. requests for a copy of the report.

Tranel’s financial disclosure report, filed May 19 with the U.S. House Clerk’s Office, shows its 2022 revenue was between $199,000 and $260,000 last year. Candidates declare their income, assets and liabilities within wide ranges.

His reported assets consist entirely of joint investments, primarily in stocks and mutual funds. They totaled between $2.7 million and $6.5 million. Tranel’s sole liability, a mortgage with Bank of America, was between $500,000 and $1 million.

Zinke’s previous disclosure listed assets between $8 million and $34 million. His earnings for 2020 were between $900,000 and $1 million, mostly from consulting work.
