Media moguls and technology executives drove a spring fundraising blitz for one of Joe Biden’s campaign committees.
The Biden Victory Fund — that affirms the former Democratic president’s Democratic bid together with the Democratic Party National Committee and 26 country parties — raked in $86.4 million from April through June thanks mostly to giant presents out of big-name donors, based on Bloomberg News.
They comprised $617,800 from Quibi creator Jeffrey Katzenberg and over $500,000 from Meg Whitman, the short-form streaming agency’s CEO and one-time Republican candidate for California governor, federal documents show. Disney executive chairman Bob Iger gave the finance $250,000, documents show.
The fund listed the highest contributions of 620,600 from ten individuals including at least three technology honchos, according to Bloomberg: Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovits, Zynga co-founder Mark Pincus and Twilio co-founder Jeff Lawson.
