Republican Donor Pockets Bigger in Texas

Two of the most prominent and generous GOP donors are from Texas. Bob Perry is a billionaire Houston homebuilder whose money helped build the Texas Republican Party into the juggernaut it's become. Harold Simmons owns a low-level nuclear waste dump which he might like to turn into a high level nuclear waste dump. Between them, they've donated nearly $100 million.
