Haim Saban for Meg Whitman?

The longtime Democratic donor just chipped in the maximum $25,900 for Republican Meg Whitman’s gubernatorial bid.

Saban also gave $18,000 to Democrat Jerry Brown last year, so this could be a case of hedging bets.

But Saban backed Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2006 over rival Phil Angelides, joining with Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg that year to support Schwarzenegger’s bid for a second term.
