Dem Mega-Donor Donates To Pro-Nikki Haley Super PAC – Trump Responds
Nikki Haley just got support from an unlikely source, a Democrat mega-donor.
LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman gave $250,000 to a Super PAC supporting Nikki Haley.
Hoffman is still expected to support Joe Biden in the general election.
Democratic mega-donor and LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman recently donated $250,000 to a super PAC supporting former South Carolina Republican Gov. Nikki Haley’s bid for the White House.
The donation – given to SFA Fund Inc., the top Haley-aligned super PAC – comes after Haley recently gained momentum in the Republican primary race and witnessed a surge in the polls.
First reported by the New York Times, the contribution was confirmed to Fox News Digital by Dmitri Mehlhorn, a political adviser to Hoffman. Hoffman declined to comment on the donation.
Despite the hefty contribution to the Haley-aligned PAC, Hoffman, a longtime Biden advocate who said he would support the incumbent’s re-election bid at the ballot box next fall, described his positioning on the issue in a Wednesday morning blog post on LinkedIn.
Donald Trump responded to the news by blasting Hoffman.
Trump said Hoffman previously funded a rape case against him.
This disgusting Slob, a Democrat Political Operative, is the same guy who funded a woman who I knew absolutely nothing about, sued me for Rape, for which I was found NOT GUILTY. She didn’t remember the year, decade, or much else! In Interviews she said some amazingly “inconsistent” things. Disgraceful Trial—Very unfair. I was asked by my lawyer not to attend—“It was beneath me, and they have no case.” That was not good advice.
Why is Hoffman giving support to Haley?
