You Decide: who are the large donators in this election

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (KSAZ) - There's been a lot of talk about "dark money" creeping into the Governor's race.

That money is difficult to trace, but there's also a lot of notable Arizonans who have publicly supported a candidate and donated to their campaign.

Those donations are listed for everyone to see on campaign finance reports.

Some powerful people in the valley, people that we all know by name. Most of them made donations to one of the six Republican candidates for governor.

Candidates with the most donations were Ducey, Smith, and Jones.

CEO's, professional sports team owners, prominent attorneys, many opened their checkbooks to support a candidate in the battle to be Arizona's next Governor.

Doug Ducey's well known campaign contributors include Robert Sarver the majority owner of the Phoenix Suns, sports icon Jerry Colangelo, restaurateur Sam Fox, Bob Morgan the former PetsMart CEO, Fife Symington a former Arizona Governor, and Mike Bidwell, the Cardinals president. 

Scott Smith got campaign contributions from co-owner of the Chicago Cubs Todd Ricketts, Campbell soup heir and real estate developer Bennett Dorrance, prominent attorney and former LDS Stake President Richard Gulbrandsen, and Tucson real estate mogul Don Diamond.

Christine Jones got contributions from Celebrity Fight Night Chairman Jimmy Walker, along with author and motivational speaker Harvey Mackay, and GoDaddy founder Bob Parsons donated millions to a political action group that supports Jones.

And we also took a look at Democrat Fred Duval's contributions. Some of his most notable contributors were Janet Napolitano, Gabriel Giffords, and pharmaceutical executive Jonah Shacnknal.

The Arizona Secretary of State's Office has a campaign finance search database, more information is located here: http://www.azsos.gov/cfs/
