Uber, Lyft Give California GOP Millions While Fighting Driver Reclassification


The Yes on Proposition 22 gave $2 million to the California Republican Party last Friday.

The Yes on Proposition 22 campaign—a ballot initiative bankrolled by Uber, Lyft, DoorDash, Instacart, and Postmates to permanently protect themselves from reclassifying California drivers as employees—has donated $2 million to California’s Republican Party.  

The revelation was posted to Twitter on Monday by KPFA Radio reporter Ariel Boone.

According to campaign finance records, the companies have contributed $184.3 million to the Yes on Proposition 22 campaign’s war chest as of September 18. In a deep dive into the campaign’s advertising operations, Darak Kerr of CNET found it had already spent millions on digital advertising, but that was likely only “a small fraction” of what would be spent on television advertisements. Here lies another way the campaign’s money is being redirected to the GOP: consulting groups and lobbyists.
