Hillary Clinton’s Mega-Donors Are Also Funding Jeb Bush

Racetrack owners, bankers, and chicken kings: Meet the ultra-rich bankrolling the Bush and Clinton dynasties. A special report by Vocativ and The Daily Beast.

For some wealthy donors, it doesn’t matter who takes the White House in 2016—as long as the president’s name is Clinton or Bush.

More than 60 ultra-rich Americans have contributed to both Jeb Bush’s and Hillary Clinton’s federal campaigns, according to an analysis of Federal Election Commission data by Vocativ and The Daily Beast. Seventeen of those contributors have gone one step further and opened their wallets to fund both Bush’s and Clinton’s 2016 ambitions.

Got my Bernie Bumper Stickers...

Got my Bernie Sanders sticker on the car now.

I know the "Bernie!" stickers seem more numerous, but I wanted one with the last name on it for the sake of 'name recognition'... Actually it's been quite a while since I wore one for anybody.

Bumper stickers for anyone running for 2016 seem non-existent in Michigan right now. I haven't seen any at all in a long time, other than for President Obama, probably "Obama-Biden" stickers from 2008...

I guess they're a lot less popular when you have to buy them yourself, rather than getting them as a giveaway, like in the old days...
