WASHINGTON — New York hedge fund billionaire George Soros and Hollywood director Steven Spielberg are among the biggest donors to a group backing Hillary Rodham Clinton’s Democratic campaign for president.
That is according to an official at the organization, known as the super PAC, a group that can campaign on behalf of a candidate, but cannot co-ordinate efforts with them.
The group, Priorities USA Action, will disclose having raised $15.6 million in the past three months when it files a required report with federal regulators.
Super PACs can take donations of unlimited size. The biggest gift was worth $2 million and came from media mogul Haim Saban, owner of the Spanish-language Univision network in the U.S.
Clinton’s campaign reported Wednesday it has raised $45 million since she declared her candidacy in mid-April.
