Bill Maher wants the Democrats to take back control of the U.S. Senate. This week, the HBO host donated $1 million to Senate Majority PAC, a political action committee dedicated to supporting Democrats running for the Senate.
"We sincerely thank Bill Maher for his generous donation," Senate Majority PAC president J.B. Poersch said in a statement. "Maher's attention to our efforts this cycle underscores the building momentum and excitement for Democratic Senate candidates that we continue to see across the country. Every donation we receive is critical to help us ensure victory come Election Day."
Maher has waded deeply into electoral politics before. He donated $1 million to Priorities USA Action, a Democratic Party-supporting super PAC, back in February 2012.
