Dimon, JPMorgan Chase Have History with Senate’s Banking Panel – OpenSecrets Blog | OpenSecrets.

Dimon has a long record of contributing to congressional candidates, primarily Democrats. In the 2012 election cycle he has given $6,800 to Democratic candidates and $4,500 to Republicans. Among the recipients are committee members Bob Corker (R-TN) and Mark Warner (D-VA). Dimon has also contributed to the top Republican and the top Democrat on the committee, though not for several years: both Richard Shelby (R-AL) and Chairman Tim Johnson (D-SD) received $2,000 from Dimon in 2008.

That campaign cycle was Dimon’s most significant as a donor. He gave the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee more than $55,000 dollars and sent thousands to multiple current members of the Banking Committee: Jack Reed (D-RI), Mike Crapo (R-ID) and Mark Warner (D-VA) each received $2,000.

While Dimon backed Hillary Clinton and Chris Dodd in the presidential race that year, he then gave $50,000 to Barack Obama’s inaugural committee. Dimon has not put any money into the 2012 presidential contest.
