HELPING REPUBLICANS INSTEAD:

Major Mitt Romney 2012 Donors Shun Donald Trump in Favor of Down-Ballot Races (ALANA ABRAMSON  Aug 23, 2016, ABC News)

An ABC News analysis of several of Mitt Romney's biggest donors in 2012 revealed that they have so far declined to help fund Donald Trump's campaign, his joint victory fund or super PACs backing him, instead shifting their contributions to congressional election campaigns.

Hedge fund manager Paul Singer, an outspoken critic of Trump, donated $1 million to Restore Our Future, a super PAC that backed Romney in 2012, and $5 million this election cycle to Conservative Solutions, a super PAC supporting Florida Sen. Marco Rubio.

Singer, who earlier this summer said Trump's economic policies could cause a "global depression," also gave $2.5 million to Our Principles PAC, intended to stop Trump from winning the GOP nomination.
