"GOP Climate Activist Gives $500K To Senator’s Campaign"

"A donor trying to push Republicans toward climate policies has given his first major donation of the 2016 election cycle to Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.).

The $500,000 donation to Ayotte’s super-PAC is the first major gift this cycle from North Carolina entrepreneur Jay Faison, who hopes to spend $175 million, in part through his ClearPath Foundation, to convince Republicans that climate change is real and there are conservative policies to confront it.

Faison sees Ayotte as a leader among the GOP on climate change, as well as a leader in the future of the party, and he hopes that more people like her will be elected."
