Washington -– An exclusive group of about two dozen Connecticut residents has raised millions of dollars to help put Hillary Clinton in the White House [including two from Westport.]
These mostly wealthy contributors – after reaching their personal federal contribution caps of $2,700 for a primary and $2,700 for a general election – have “bundled” contributions, which means they have turned to friends, associates and anyone else willing to give to a candidate.
According to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, Richard and Ellen Richman of Greenwich, are among the largest bundlers in Connecticut for Clinton’s campaign. The Richmans have raised more than $1 million – mostly from a $33,000-a-plate fundraiser the couple held in August that featured Clinton.
Some of the money raised at the Richman’s fundraiser went to the Democratic National Committee. which is helping in the effort to put Clinton in the White House.
