Earlier this year, Comey gave $2,700 to the presidential campaign of Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.), who was in his class at the University of Chicago Law School. The money to Klobuchar’s campaign came on the heels of $2,700 that Comey gave to both Jennifer Wexton (D., Va.) and Abigail Spanberger (D., Va.) during last year’s midterm elections. Comey also canvassed for Wexton in her Virginia congressional district on Election Day.
Comey, a former Republican, previously donated to John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign and Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign before switching his monetary support to Democrats during the 2018 elections, filings show.
Comey has said that his wife, Patrice, “really badly” wanted Hillary Clinton to win the 2016 presidential contest, and so far this year she has given more to Democratic campaigns and PACs.
Patrice gave a $10,000 contribution to the Fair Fight PAC, a committee linked to failed Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, in mid-May.
