The political action committee of the Toyota Motor Company said it will no longer donate to politicians who objected to the 2020 election of President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
The PAC announced its decision Thursday, adding that Toyota “is committed to supporting and promoting actions that further our democracy.”
“Our company has long-standing relationships with members of Congress across the political spectrum, especially those representing our U.S. operations,” the PAC said in a statement. “Our bipartisan PAC equally supports Democrats and Republicans running for Congress. In fact, in 2021, the vast majority of the contributions went to Democrats and Republicans who supported the certification of the 2020 election.”
The decision was influenced by some stakeholders uneasy about the PAC supporting certain members of Congress who didn’t accept the 2020 election results.
“We are actively listening to our stakeholders and, at this time, we have decided to stop contributing to those members of Congress who contested the certification of certain states in the 2020 election,” the PAC statement said.
