‘Liberal’ megadonors plan $100 million swing-state blitz to beat Trump
Being “liberal” doesn’t mean what it once did. That is for sure. Lots of billionaires.
There are other donor gatherings organized by the likes of David Brock, the founder of American Bridge and Media Matters; the states-focused collaborative Way to Win; and a new political operation helmed by tech billionaire Reid Hoffman, who collects money from other donors in addition to giving his own.
In recent years, a handful of megadonors also began putting tens of millions of their own dollars into political groups they founded and have funded themselves — among them: Tom Steyer and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
