Mindy Finn is a Republican Party political strategist and failed 2016 vice presidential candidate alongside presidential candidate Evan McMullin. McMullin and Finn are co-founders of Stand Up Republic, a nominally right-leaning organization critical of the Trump administration partially funded by the center-left group Democracy Fund.  Until October 2016, Finn was a member of the Democracy Fund’s National Advisory Committee. 
Association with Left-Wing Groups
From January 2016 to January 2018, Finn was a member of the national advisory committee for Pierre Omidyar’s Democracy Fund, the 501(c)(3) arm of the 501(c)(4) lobbying group Democracy Fund Voice, a supporter of Stand Up Republic. 
Both Finn and Evan McMullin are advisory board members for the nominally libertarian Niskanen Center, which advocates for left-wing policies.
