James Murdoch, the son of billionaire and Fox Corporation founder Rupert Murdoch, and his wife Kathryn have donated $1.23 million to former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign, according to filings.
New York Times reporter Kenneth Vogel, citing Federal Election Commission (FEC) receipts, first highlighted James and Kathryn Murdoch gave $615,000 each last month to the Biden Victory Fund, a joint fundraising effort between the Biden campaign, the Democrat National Committee (DNC), and state parties.
Murdoch, previously CEO of 21st Century Fox, is known as a political centrist compared to his more conservative brother, Lachlan Murdoch. Since departing the Fox empire in March, Murdoch launched the investment group Lupa Systems.
Murdoch’s million-dollar donation to the Biden campaign isn’t the first contribution he’s made during the 2020 presidential election.
