How Mega-Donor Bob Perry Spent His Political Money

He also donated $45,000 to the campaign of George P. Bush, the 36-year-old nephew of the former president who is claiming his stake as Texas Land Commissioner in his first run for office.

An analysis from the Texas Tribune reports that Perry gave $28 million to candidates and causes from Texas and an additional $38 million to outside groups and individuals.
