10 super-rich people are dominating donations to super PACs to influence midterm elections. Ten super-rich individuals have given more than 20% of the money filling the bank accounts of federal super PACs, a USA TODAY analysis shows, highlighting how a small group of wealthy patrons is racing to influence which party will control Congress for the remainder of President Trump's first term. Leading the pack: Illinois-based packaging magnate Richard Uihlein, who has donated nearly $19.5 million so far to groups working to elect conservative Republicans to Congress from Mississippi to Montana. Uihlein-funded groups have trained much of their millions on advertising in Wisconsin to attack first-term Democratic Sen. Tammy Baldwin and to boost a political newcomer, Republican Kevin Nicholson, ahead of the state's GOP primary. California billionaire Tom Steyer is the top Democratic donor. Source 6x.
