Top Republican Donors Remain on the Sidelines

With the Iowa Caucuses are less than three weeks away, the biggest Republican donors are sitting on the sidelines, NBC News reported.

Of the top five donors who spent more than $100 million dollars in 2012, only two have pledged support to a candidate this election cycle. Only five of the top ten Republican donors have picked a candidate, according to the most recent data from the Federal Election Commission.

Among those who have yet to back a candidate are Sheldon and Miriam Adelson, who spent more than $90 million four years ago, John Joe Ricketts, the Chicago Cubs owner and founder of TD Ameritrade, and Jerrold and Margaret Perenchio, owners of Univision.

The FEC will release campaign filings from the last three months at the end of January, which will give more insight into the last six months’ worth of Super PACs’ donations.
