Movie Mogul Raises $1 Million for Mitch McConnell's Democratic Foe

Movie mogul Jeffrey Katzenberg raised more than $1 million for Alison Lundergan Grimes,the Democratic challenger to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, at a recent fundraiser at the Spago restaurant in Beverly Hills, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

In an email to potential donors sent earlier this month, Katzenberg said of the Kentucky Senate race, "There is no more important election being held next year in this country." Katzenberg wrote that he sees McConnell as an obstructionist who has crippled the US Senate and hurt the democratic process in Congress. "Alison is the antidote to McConnell and all he represents," Katzenberg wrote. "She can win, and she will win if she gets the support she needs."

This is not good news for McConnell campaign director Jesse Benton, who already holds his nose while working for McConnell.
