Crypto gets political: How cryptocurrency impacted Tuesday’s primary elections
·3 min read

Turns out, a couple of Tuesday’s most closely watched primary elections in the U.S. have some connection to crypto. In Oregon, a super PAC called Protect Our Future has spent nearly $11 million on the candidacy of Democratic House hopeful Carrick Flynn, according to Open Secrets, a site that tracks political donations. The super PAC has spent money on TV ads, radio ads and direct mail services on Flynn’s behalf, making the primary race for Oregon’s 6th congressional district the third most expensive House Democratic primary of this election cycle.
