    Who is Medina's richest man giving to this election cycle? So far, Bill Gates' biggest single donation has been $2,300 to GOP Congressman Dave Reichert's re-election campaign, according to federal records. He's given nothing yet to the ex-sheriff's opponent Darcy Burner. On the other hand, based on donations compiled by OpenSecrets.org, Gates' Microsoft employees have donated $80,000 to her campaign (compared to $28,000 for Reichert).

    Semi-retired chairman Bill also gave Democratic Sen. Pat Leahy and GOP Sen. John Cornyn $2,000 each. He has altogether doled out $34,300 in the 2007-2008 cycle, mostly in $1,000 increments to candidates and causes. As for president, he's not financially committed on the record, with no donatations recorded yet to either candidate. However, Microsofties have -- through individual and PAC donations -- given John McCain just $36,000 while Barack Obama has netted $211,000. Someone named Hillary Clinton got $181,000.
