New York, Oct 28 (ANI): US President Barack Obama's left-leaning political agenda is scaring conservatives into donating huge sums of money to the Republican parties.
"Many, many people conservative by nature are horrified and terrified at what they've seen in the last two years, and they feel like they're fighting for the survival of the country," The New York Daily News quoted one of the Republican Party's most prominent moneymen, as saying.
For example, a retired businessman and his wife who had never contributed a penny recently gave 1 million dollars to one of the independent conservative groups godfathered by GOP political guru Karl Rove.
GOP buckrakers the majority of the outside cash is largely generated by a backlash against Obama and his policies.
"People are so scared of what Obama will do to the country they're clamouring to donate," a veteran GOP fund-raiser said.
However, Obama is an enormous cash magnet for Democrats. He's raised tens of millions of dollars for his beleaguered party, which most political pros predict will lose the House in Tuesday's midterm elections. (ANI)
