Poultry magnate Ron Cameron of Little Rock, long an associate of the Koch brothers in their political gatherings and big contributor to conservative political causes, has answered the Kochs’ call for contributions to their new Super PAC, Freedom Partners Action Fund.
He was the first reported donor in two weeks of operation with a whopping $500,000.
Cameron said he’s concerned that the country’s freedoms are threatened and is particularly opposed to the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama’s 2010 health-insurance law.
“Obamacare is a disaster for the country and is the present administration’s effort to try to take over all of the private health-care services,” he said in a telephone interview.
It’s the largest single political donation Cameron has made to a federal candidate or committee, according to Federal Election Commission data. “This is a big contribution,” he said.
Cameron is grandson of the founder of the privately held poultry operation.
