Meet the Donor Who Maxed Out to Trump & Hillary
Hillary Clinton, looking ahead to the general election, is attracting donors from the financial sector, including some who have previously contributed to her likely opponent, Donald Trump.
According to a report by the Wall Street Journal on Sunday, Clinton’s support Wall Street donors include Ralph Herzka, CEO and founder of the investment advisory firm Meridian Capital Partners, who is among the couple hundred donors who have maxed out to Trump’s presidential campaign in the Republican primaries.
FEC financial disclosure reports show that Herzka donated to Clinton’s presidential campaign the maximum amount of $2,700 for the primary, and another $2,700 for the general – in January.
Herzka maxed out to Trump last June when the Republican field included 16 candidates. He also donated to Marco Rubio’s presidential campaign after attending a Rubio fundraiser hosted by Ben Heller and Phil Rosen in NYC.
His son David, who started his direct-to-consumer online neckwear line David Fin in 2015, gave Trump a red, white and blue tie during a breakfast at home of Trump’s daughter Ivanka’s in-laws Seryl and Charles Kushner, according to an August report by WWD.
