The big money in California is continuing to flow toward Hillary Clinton – and it is not just coming from the usual places.
Following the announcement last week by Silicon Valley executive and Republican stalwart Meg Whitman that she would be opening her immense wallet and her impressive list of fundraising contacts to the Clinton campaign, on Tuesday one of the most reliably Republican entertainment executives said he would will do the same.
