Large donations from affluent Californians are heading toward presidential hopefuls and President Barack Obama.
The Mercury News wrote a report on some of these larger donations, including $2 million to Obama from DreamWorks co-founder Jeffrey Katzenberg.
The report also listed Univision CEO Jerry Perenchio donating $2 million to electing a Republican while PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel donated $900,000 to Ron Paul.
A local boy showed up in the report. Famed pilot -- and Danville resident -- Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, who successfully landed in the Hudson River after the plane hit a flock of geese, knocking the engine out, donated $5,000 to Obama's campaign.
From the Mercury News:
Retired airline pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, who became a hero when he successfully landed in New York's Hudson River, gave Obama $5,000. The Danville resident is a registered Republican.
If you could donate $5,000 to a president campaign, which campaign would you donate to and why?
