Some of Hillary Clinton's most fervent supporters are taking their enthusiasm ? and their campaign contributions ? to John McCain.

More than 85 of Clinton's fundraisers, including Donald Trump, Univision chief executive Joseph Uva, cable mogul Charles Dolan, philanthropist Norma Hess and one of Florida's biggest lobbyists appear to be skipping Barack Obama when it comes to writing checks for the general election, according to an ABCNews.com review of campaign finance records.

These Clinton donors have contributed at least $200,000 to McCain's campaign in the last few months, an amount which doesn't include larger contributions to the Republican joint fundraising committees.



It's a good thing the Democrats are ignoring these people and denying that they exist. More for McCain!

God knows he needs it, he's getting slaughtered in fundraising. $200,000 for McCain from Hillary donors eh? I wonder how many million Obama's gotten in the same time.

Sounds like the usual crop of "play both sides" donors. This is hardly uncommon. Plenty of people looking to buy influence hedge their bets.

Good for them...and good for the tremendous number of voters who previously supported Hilary, decided that they wouldn't vote at all after she was out of the race, and are now coming out of the woodwork thanks to her recent comeback to vote for Obama.

Yep, cover your bets to have access no matter the winner.
