Super PAC Donor Gives $585K More, Joins Top Tier (Updated)

An individual donor to Super PACs has given $585,000 in April and May, moving him into the top ten Super PAC donors this election cycle.

John Jordan, the CEO of the Jordan Winery in Healdsburg, California, has contributed $585,000 to the New Republican.org super PAC during April and May. He gave $285,000 on April 24th, and $300,000 on May 5th, which was reported today.

The New Republican.org super PAC was founded in 2013 by Alex Castellanos to promote a positive GOP agenda for the future. Its earlier ads featured former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, R-Fla., and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, R-La. The group received $500,000 in early funding from members of the DeVos family. From May 1st through May 31st the group has spent $248,634 on independent expenditures supporting Monica Wehby, R-Ore., in the Oregon U.S. Senate race.

John Jordan had previously given $1.7 million in 2013 to Americans for Progressive Action, which spent $624,823 against Rep. Edward Markey, R-Mass., and $702,003 for Gabriel Gomez, R-Mass., in the U.S. Senate race in Massachusetts.

John Jordan’s recent $585,000 in contributions, and the earlier ones, bring his 2013-2014 election cycle total to super PACs up to $2,285,000, placing him as the 10th largest super PAC donor, of those reporting so far.

    Understanding that our own ignorance is the beginning of wisdom helps each of us remember that we are ignorant regarding most things.

    WE SEND OUR TROOPS TO IRAQ, BUT DON’T TREAT OUR VETERANS WELL WHEN THEY RETURN. WE SEND BILLIONS OF FOREIGN AID TO THE UKRAINE, AND OTHER COUNTRIES, BUT THE SENATE WON’T PASS THE UNEMPLOYMENT EXTENSION BILL FOR THE THREE MILLION OF UNEMPLOYED FAMILIES WITHOUT BENEFITS SINCE LATE LAST DECEMBER. THESE FAMILIES HAVE FALLEN INTO FINANCIAL RUIN, MANY ARE WITHOUT HOMES. THE REPUBLICANS HAVE INTENTIONALLY DELAYED AND POSTPONED THE VOTE UNTIL THE BILL WOULD BECOME DIFFICULT TO PASS. THESE ARE OUR SO CALLED “PUBLIC SERVANTS” IN ACTION THESE DAYS. THEY ALL NEED TO BE VOTED OUT OF OFFICE FOR FAILING TO SERVE THE PEOPLE.
