Which Candidates Are Big Donors Betting On?


The biggest fundraisers in the Democratic Party have identified early favorites in the 2020 race. Big-money Democratic donors have jumped off the sidelines of the presidential race. Politico reports that three candidates are the clear winners of their support: Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg and Kamala Harris. Each of those three candidates received more than 220 donations from top fundraisers, known as bundlers. These same bundlers helped raise at least $100,000 (and sometimes many multiples more) for Hillary Clinton. Close to 40 percent of the 810 bundlers who have donated to a 2020 Democrat so far have given to more than one candidate.

  • Trump Wins Over Big Donors

    The president's 2020 campaign is launching an ambitious fundraising network aimed at supporters of his past GOP rivals. Politico reports rich Republicans who snubbed Donald Trump in 2016 are going all in for him in 2020. The donors are throwing their weight behind a newly created fundraising drive that’s expected to dump tens of millions into his reelection coffers. The effort involves high-powered businessmen, lobbyists and former ambassadors. The individuals raised big money for George W. Bush, John McCain and Mitt Romney. They are now preparing to tap their expansive networks for Trump after rejecting his first presidential bid. On May 7 well-connected Republican fundraisers from around the country descend on Washington for a closed-door event with Trump 2020 aides.

  • Warren To Restrict Access To Big Donors

    Politico reports U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren pledged she will not hold any expensive fundraisers to collect cash for her Presidential bid. In an email, Warren promised she won’t sell access to big-name donors as candidates often do to raise money for a presidential bid. She becomes the first candidate to formally swear-off the traditional means of campaign funding. Instead of fancy galas with thousand dollar plates, Warren will have to depend mainly on contributions from grassroots supporters. She will hold no fundraising dinners, cocktail parties, or thousand dollar photo-op meet and greets. This is a stark contrast to 2016 Democratic Nominee Hillary Clinton, who held several dozen events for big donors. Don't expect Elizabeth Warren to stick to this promise during the general election. Warren said she would return to conducting pricey fundraising events for big money donors should she win the nomination.
