Dec 10 2014 | 8:13am ET

The Republican Governors Association raised close to $25 million from October 1 to November 24—some of it from prominent hedge fund managers.

Steve Cohen of Point72 Asset Management (the successor to SAC Capital Management, which was shut down to settle insider trading charges) donated $1.5 million to a sub-committee of the RGA, the American Comeback Committee. According to Project Money Line, the donation was made on October 24, after the books were closed on the last pre-election disclosure report.

Bruce Kovner of Caxton Alternative Management donated $500,000 to the RGA which, as a Section 527 organization, can receive unlimited donations.

Daniel Loeb of Third Point donated $250,000.
