Hedging bets in 2016: Donors give money to Bush and Clinton
WASHINGTON (AP) -- In what is already a $400 million presidential race, there's a small but intriguing set of donors who have given money to the campaigns of both Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton and Republican Jeb Bush.
That list includes a grocery chain owner in Manhattan and a charity founder in Florida.
Overall, an Associated Press review finds that 60 or so donors have given about $300,000 to hopefuls in both major parties. It's an odd wrinkle in a race with an expected 22 candidates vying for billions of political dollars.
There are even more people giving to multiple candidates in the same party, the review shows, reflecting uncertainty among donors watching a crowded Republican primary with no clear front-runner and an array of governors and senators in the mix.
