None of the Top 10 Biggest Political Donors are Republican -- By The Washington Free Beacon Staff

DNCThe Center for Responsive Politics (CRP) released its list of top all-time donors. It totaled contributions from 1989 to 2012 from PACs and individuals affiliated with the heavy hitter organizations.

CRP designated each of the heavy hitters as Democrat, Republican, or “on the fence,” meaning between 40 and 59 percent was donated to each party. In some cases, percentages did not add up to 100 due to third party donations.

ActBlue is a federally registered political action committee that was launched in 2004. It calls itself “the online clearinghouse for Democratic action.”

The group donated $97,192,340 between 1989 and 2012, according to CRP. Ninety-nine percent of its contributions went to Democrats.
