AP: Katzenberg Is Top Obama Donor

Katz_wwDreamworks Animation’s Jeffrey Katzenberg is the top individual donor to President Obama and SuperPACs that support his reelection.

That’s based on an Associated Press analysis of 2.3 million campaign contributions. But pretty much a glance at the top Democratic contributors to SuperPACs made it clear that Katzenberg was at or near the top. He contributed $2 million at the launch of Priorities USA Action, the pro-Obama SuperPAC run by two former White House aides, in addition to helping to raise more than $500,000.

The top Republican donor isn’t much of a surprise, either. It’s Sheldon Adelson, of Las Vegas Sands Corp.

Here are the top five Democratic contributors to Obama’s reelection, via the AP:

1. Jeffrey Katzenberg, $2.566 million

2. Irwin Jacobs, founder of Qualcomm, $2.122 million

3. Fred Eychaner, founder of Newsweb Corp., $2.066 million (tie)

3. Jon Stryker, Michigan philanthropist, $2.066 million (tie)

5. Steve Mostyn, personal injury attorney, $2.033 million
