The Minnesota Jobs Coalition Legislative Fund's September pre-general campaign finance report and disclosure statements made clear that the Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) contributed two checks totaling $175,000 to the MNGOP front group.
Where did the RSLC get the money? We embed its third quarter 8872 report for 2016 to the IRS below. Of most interest? On page 11, there's a $50,000 contribution from Hubbard Broadcasting. Corporations are not allowed to give directly to candidates under Minnesota campaign finance law, so it's neat that a major media enterprise found a way around that obstacle.

Hubbard Broadcasting owns television and radio stations across Minnesota, so we'll probably have to check the MJC reports to see how many of the Minnesota Jobs Coalition television and radio attack ads have been placed with the corporation (also neat to cycle those dollars back to the corporation if this is so)
Stanley S. Hubbard, chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) of Hubbard Broadcasting, is a "profilic Republican donor."
