LGBT Donors Bring Obama Big Money

Ellen DeGeneres, Suzy Orman, Ricky Martin, and Neil Patrick Harris are just a few of the big, gay names coming out in support of President Obama this week. Following Obama's announcement that he is in favor of same-sex marriage, one of two upcoming LGBT-organized fundraisers had to find a bigger venue to accommodate all of his new supporters. According to CNN, one in every 16 of Obama’s bundlers, his biggest fundraisers, is openly gay, and have raised at least $8 million just between January and March—that's more than bundlers in the TV, music, and music industry raised during that same period.
