Gov. Branstad Campaign Contributions

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) --
   Gov. Terry Branstad has received big campaign contributions from Iowa business leaders, special interest political committees and from celebrity businessman Donald Trump.
   Branstad filed his campaign finance report for 2013 on Tuesday. It shows that he has about $4.1 million in cash on hand for his re-election campaign.
   The report says Branstad received contributions ranging in size from $5 to $1 million. His biggest contributor was a political action committee affiliated with the Republican Governors Association, which gave him $1 million.
   Other top contributors include well-known Iowa businessmen Bruce Rastetter and John Pappajohn, who both gave more than $30,000 to the campaign. Reality TV star and real estate mogul Donald Trump gave Branstad $15,000.
   Branstad's likely Democratic opponent, state lawmaker Jack Hatch, has about $240,000 on hand.
