    Foster Friess, individually and through various family members, has contributed more than $575,000 to Republicans in the previous three campaign cycles, and has chunked in $51,000 so far for 2006.

    That $88,000,000 in Armor Holdings stock held by Friess Associates LLC? Before the Iraq war began, it would have been worth about $30,000,000. No wonder he's throwing money the Republicans' way.

        and yes, they do donate to various races - although Kanders donates somewhat more to Republicans. My main thrust, though, was that one of their biggest shareholders was a fund owned and operated by a very big Republican donor.
