Saban and his wife Cheryl are notoriously generous with their financial support of Democratic candidates. In 2016, they donated $6.4 million to Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid. An event Saban hosted for Clinton in August 2016 reportedly raised $5 million.

Saban said in a statement last week ahead of the event: “I am pleased to see so many Democrats coming together in support of Vice President Joe Biden, and I am proud to endorse him for President. Joe is a proven leader who has the experience, vision and heart to unify our country in this hyper-partisan time.”

The Sabans did not support a candidate during the primary process.

The Biden campaign is coming off a strong fundraising month for August, which brought in $364.5 million, shattering the record for most money raised in a single month by a political candidate. Donald Trump’s reelection campaign brought in $210 million in August.
