Two Westporters are among a dozen Connecticut donors who gave a total of $800,000 to the Republican Governors Association in the first quarter of 2014, money the state GOP hopes will flow back to its campaign to unseat Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, a vulnerable first-term Democrat.
With individuals and corporations able to make unlimited contributions, the money came from just six individuals and six companies, led by a $250,000 check from Linda McMahon, twice the GOP nominee for U.S. Senate, according to a Connecticut Mirror analysis of IRS filings.
Westporter Thomas E. McInerney, the chief executive officer of Bluff Point Associates, a private equity firm based in Westport, gave $100,000. And David H. McCormick of Westport, the co-president of the Westport-based hedge fund, Bridgewater Associates, gave $25,000 to the Republican group.
No one else from Bridgewater, including its billionaire founder, Ray Dalio, worth an estimated $14 billion by Forbes, gave to either the Republican or Democrat group.
