    United States billionaire George Soros donated $6 million in December to Priorities USA Action, a political action committee (PAC) supporting Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, the organization's latest financial statement said, as cited by local media.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Soros's total contribution to the pro-Clinton PAC has amounted to $7 million, The Hill newspaper reported Sunday. Priorities USA Action was able to raise a total of $41 million on behalf of Clinton in 2015, according to the news outlet.

    Haim Saban, a media mogul and musician and his wife Cheryl, as well as investor Donald Sussman are among the biggest financial contributors to Clinton's campaign, having donated $5 million and $2.5 million respectively, according to the media outlet.
