Big Dough Donor from Doral

The list of big South FL contributors to the Obama Inaugural doesn’t contain many of the “usual suspects”– those who raise mega-sums for campaigns every election cycle.  Indeed, the only max contributor ($50,000) from our area is a guy who– as far as I can tell– had never given to a campaign before this year.

His name is Raul Pedraza, and he owns a global shipping/transportation company, Magno International, located in Doral photo from the web site’s below).  Magno is certified as a Minority Business Enterprise by the government, and appears to have lots of government contracts.  Pedraza’s bio says he’s Harvard-educated, a veteran– but, before this year, not much of political donor.

I found no records of any donations until February of this year.  Since then, Pedraza’s given about $25,000 to the Obama campaigns and various allied committees, and now, 50-grand to the Inaugural committee.
