Wisconsin spice company outspends Democrats on Facebook impeachment ads

MADISON (WKOW) — A Wisconsin-based spice company is outspending Democratic candidates running for president in Facebook advertisements supporting the impeachment of President Trump.

Penzey’s Spices spent $92,000 on Facebook impeachment ads from Sept 29 through Oct. 5, according to data published by Bully Pulpit Interactive. This follows President Trump who spent $718,000 defending the impeachment investigation.

To compare, Democratic candidate Tom Steyer spent $86,000 and Senator Elizabeth Warren spent $20,000.

Penzey’s has spent almost $110,000 in the past week on ads about social issues, elections or politics, according to data made publically available by Facebook. The company has spent over $2.3 million on such posts dating back to May of last year.

27 News reported in April of 2018 the company’s CEO, Bill Penzey, cashed in after being politically vocal on social media about President Trump.
