Kenneth Griffin has raised money for his hometown’s presidential candidate, Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), but the presumptive Democratic nominee shouldn’t expect the Citadel Investment Group founder’s vote in November.
Griffin recently organized a fundraiser for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), the presumptive Republican nominee for president, and prefers McCain to Obama, The New York Times reports. McCain’s campaign released an updated list of so-called “bundlers,” fundraisers who have collected more than $50,000 each, this week, quadrupling the length of the list to more than 400 names. Among the names on the list was Griffin, who has railed more than $50,000 for each candidate.
Griffin hosted an Obama fundraiser at his Chicago-based firm last year.
