SPO Partners co-founder William Oberndorf gave $2.2 million to Republicans during the midterms. Oberndorf's hedge fund, $5 billion SPO Partners, closed in late 2018.
Oberndorf was a big supporter of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush during the primaries, and told The New York Times that he would be voting for Clinton over Trump in the election. Since the election, he has sought, similar to Singer, to support more moderate Republicans in primary races. He has also supported California democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
He also donated to nearly $50,000 in 2016 to support the controversial Proposition Q in San Francisco, which banned tents on sidewalks. It proposition, which was passd, was criticized by activists for criminalizing homelessness.
