Guess who one of the top political donors to Republicans is in Orange County, California? Yep, it's still Ben Kante, 'chief strategy officer' of SeneGence, and husband to Joni Rogers-Kante, founder of SeneGence. He's the number two donor for this region:
Ben “Bennie” Kante has donated $1.35 million this cycle, all to Republicans.
He’s husband to Joni Rogers-Kante, founder of SeneGence, a Foothill Ranch-based multilevel marketing company that makes self-care products, including the popular LipSense line of lipsticks. Kante is chief strategy officer for the 20-year-old company, with his donations sometimes listed out of Orange County and often listed out of a small city in Oklahoma where Rogers-Kante grew up and where the company has a SeneGence distribution center.
More than half of Kante’s donations have gone to Take Back the House 2020. He’s also donated $26,041 to Trump Victory. The rest has gone to state GOP committees and candidates across the country.
Kante donated $2 million in the 2017-18 election cycle, including $1 million to super PAC America First Action, which supports Trump. He didn’t show any donations in the 10 years prior, and his wife gave just $1,000 to the NRCC in 2006 and again in 2007.
The Kante's support for Trump was a deal-breaker for many of us. Maybe it's a reason you decide to stay. Who knows. But it's important to be aware.
