GOP megadonor Ken Griffin "actively contemplating" supporting Haley
Driving the news: Griffin told Bloomberg News on Tuesday that he is "actively contemplating" supporting Haley.
- "That's a decision that we're actively contemplating," he said during an interview with Bloomberg News at the Citadel Securities Global Macro Conference. "I mean, we are at the finish line on that choice. Yes or no."
The big picture: Griffin, the founder and CEO of hedge fund Citadel, indicated in September that he was souring on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who he previously had said that he planned to support.
- "It's not clear to me what voter base he is intending to appeal to," Griffin said of the Florida governor.
- Griffin gave $5 million in 2021 to a political action committee backing DeSantis' governor reelection bid, according to state campaign finance records.
- JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon has been having private conversations with Haley, Axios reported earlier on Tuesday.
