Sports Personalities Among DCCC’s October Donors

Posted November 20, 2009 at 7:58pm

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s October fundraising report, which it filed Friday evening, includes a number of sports figures.

Jason Taylor, a defensive end for the Miami Dolphins football team, gave $10,000 to the DCCC last month. (Football fans, especially those in the nation’s capital, will recall that Taylor played last year for the Washington Redskins, who probably wish they had him this season.)

Robert Kraft, the owner of the perennial powerhouse New England Patriots, also gave $10,000 to the DCCC. Kraft contributes frequently to Democratic Party organizations and candidates.
