Google Exec. Donates to Kaine

Tim Craig

Eric Schmidt, the chairman and chief executive officer of GOOGLE, appears to have made his first foray into Virginia politics.

Schmidt, a supporter of President-Elect. Barack Obama, donated $10,000 to Gov. Timothy M. Kaine's political action committee on Oct. 31, according to the State Board of Elections.

Schmidt made the donation to Moving Virginia Forward one day after he campaigned for Obama at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. According to the Virginia Public Access Project, it's the first time Schmidt has given any money to a Virginia political candidate or committee.
