According to Federal Election Commission records, on September 30, News Corp. CEO and chairman Rupert Murdoch gave $2,500 to the Senate Majority Fund, the leadership political action committee of Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ). Kyl serves as the assistant minority leader for Senate Republicans, and uses the PAC to support other Republicans.

News Corp. is the parent company of the Fox News Channel.

Murdoch, a long time donor to Republican causes, has also given $1,500 to Meg Whitman's unsuccessful California gubernatorial campaign, and $10,000 to former Fox News employee John Kasich's successful Ohio gubernatorial campaign.

News Corp. recently donated $1.25 million to the Republican Governors' Association and $1 million to the GOP-aligned Chamber of Commerce.

Murdoch is one of numerous Fox Newsers who have supported the Republican Party during this election cycle.
