Haim Saban Donates $1 Million to Democratic Super PACs

How to Make

The media mogul made the donation to Unity PAC, a fundraising committee raising cash for three pro-Democratic super PACs.

Media mogul Haim Saban has donated $1 million to super PACs supporting President Barack Obama and Democratic congressional candidates, according to a report filed late Friday with the Federal Election Commission.

Saban donated the money on June 25th to Unity PAC, a fundraising committee created to raise cash for Priorities USA, (Senate) Majority PAC, House Majority PAC. Saban's contribution is the largest Hollywood super PAC donation March, when Bill Maher donated $1 million to Priorities USA, the struggling pro-Obama super PAC.

Democratic fundraisers are hopeful that the mogul's contribution will prompt other liberal donors to kick in cash to match the millions being raised by the pro-Republican super PACs.
