Some of the country’s largest tech and telecom companies are suspending or completely ending their political donation activity in the wake of the riots at the U.S. Capitol last week. Here are the companies that have come forward.

AT&T

Dallas-based telecom giant AT&T is halting donations to Republicans who objected to electoral votes last week.

“Employees on our Federal PAC Board convened a call today and decided to suspend contributions to members of Congress who voted to object to the certification of Electoral College votes this week,” AT&T said in a statement on Monday.

AT&T’s PAC gave to Cruz and Republican Senator from Josh Hawley’s senate campaigns as recently as last year, who, like Cruz, objected to the certification of Biden’s electoral votes last week.
