Warren Buffett backs Hillary Clinton with donation


Billionaire investor Warren Buffett has donated $25,000 to Ready for Hillary, a super PAC laying the groundwork for Hillary Clinton’s potential White House bid. 

Mr Buffett, known as the 'Sage of Omaha' has long been an outspoken supporter of Mrs Clinton.  Mr Buffett has also said he could not think of "anyone better qualified" than Mrs Clinton to be president, adding last October at Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit that he would "bet money" on her winning and that “Hillary is going to win.” He’s also contributed to her past campaigns. But the new donation is the first time he has contributed to a super PAC that can raise or spend unlimited amounts to aid an individual candidate.
