One Bush bundler told CNN’s Dana Bash that when it came to Murphy, “strong knives are out.”
“He made minimum of $14 million,” the bundler said, requesting anonymity to speak freely about campaign strategy.
The details of Murphy’s compensation package at Right to Rise are not publicly known.
But he was handsomely paid by Whitman’s campaign during the 2010 gubernatorial race. Whitman invested $1 million in a movie company that he owned before he had even joined her effort. Most months after he joined her campaign, Murphy’s company, Bonaparte Films, was paid $90,000, according to financial disclosure reports filed in California.
