Washington – With the notable exception of Linda McMahon, Connecticut’s Republican mega-donors have largely steered clear of helping their party’s standard bearer – Donald J. Trump.
Instead, some of Connecticut’s richest Republicans gave to other candidates running in the GOP primaries and even to the anti-Trump Our Principles PAC, a fund established by a top campaign aide of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. These funds operate independently of a candidate’s campaign and are not subject to limits on donation amounts.
According to the Federal Elections Commission, Michael Vlock of Branford, director of Launch Capital, gave $1.5 million to the Conservative Solutions PAC that backed the failed candidacy of Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.
Vlock also gave $2.7 million to the stop-Trump Our Principles PAC.
