Top 5 Contributors to Paul Ryan

AP120522040647.jpgPresidential candidate Mitt Romney boosted his money game with the addition of Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan to the ticket.

Ryan, a House member since 1998, is a powerhouse when it comes to fundraising. His campaign committee and leadership PAC have raised a combined $8.51 million thus far this election cycle. As of June 30, only House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's leadership PAC has out-raised Ryan's PAC.

PACs or individuals associated with these entities are the top five contributors to Ryan's 2012 re-election campaign committee, which has raised $4.38 million so far.

  1. Baker Tilly: $19,250.
  2. Northwestern Mutual: $16,000.
  3. Abbott Laboratories: $14,250.
  4. PricewaterhouseCoopers: $12,250.
  5. Wells Fargo: $12,150.

Ryan's leadership PAC, Prosperity PAC, has raised $4.16 million this cycle, four times more than it raised in the 2010 cycle. PACs or individuals associated with these companies are the top contributors to Prosperity PAC:

  1. Elliott Management: $35,000.
  2. Prosperity PAC: $30,000.
  3. Recycled Paper Greetings: $15,000.
  4. UBS AG: $12,500.
  5. Home Depot: $10,250.

The House candidate receiving the biggest chunk of donations from Prosperity PAC is Republican Matt Doheny, whose campaign committee received $17,500 to support Doheny's run for a seat from New York. The PAC also gave $10,000 each to the campaign committees of Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., and Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., who is running for a Senate seat. Prosperity PAC has given $20,000 to Romney's campaign, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics
