Billionaire Peter Thiel has poured $1.7 million more into a super PAC supporting presidential candidate Ron Paul, bringing his total contributions to $2.6 million.
Reports filed with the Federal Election Commission today show that Thiel, a Silicon Valley investor, made the additional contributions to the Endorse Liberty PAC in the first half of January.
Thiel, a libertarian, is the single largest donor to the PAC.
PayPal co-founders Luke Nosek and Scott Banister also have donated to Paul’s super PAC, although in much smaller amounts. Banister gave $50,000 in December. Nosek gave $10,001 in January.
