David Rensin Tops $1 Million in Donations to GOP

Tim Craig

David K. Rensin, a software engineer, has surpassed $1 million in total contributions to conservative causes and Virginia Republican candidates this year.

On Friday, Rensin donated $160,000 to Republican Jill Holtzman Vogel, who is locked in a tight race against Democrat Karen Schultz in a district that stretches from western Loudoun County to Winchester. Since January, Rensin has contributed $380,000 to Vogel's campaign, according to the Virginia Public Access Project, which tracks money in state politics.

But Rensin's political donations go far beyond helping Holtzman Vogel, a former leader of the Virginia Conservative Action PAC. According to VPAP, he's donated more than $1.1 million to conservative candidates or political action committees this year. Rensin, founder of Herndon-based Reality Mobile LLC, appears to be stepping up his political efforts. In 2005, he contributed about $200,000 to GOP candidates and political action committees.
