SF Giants owner Charles Johnson is unparalleled in donating to the republican party this election cycle.

Less than two weeks after the SF Giants laid off 10% of their full-time employees, an investigation by ESPN and FiveThirtyEight revealed that principal owner Charles Johnson has donated nearly $11 million to the Republican Party during the 2016-2020 election cycle. He had no peer in professional sports.

While Johnson donated $5,200 to Democratic Party organizations and $35,000 to bipartisan orgs, he donated $10,995,500 to Republican affiliated ones.
