Thanks to Jeannette Ward for forwarding to me this list of GOP contributors. Since it's fairly lengthy, I'll print half today and the other half tomorrow.
Copied from The Hightower Lowdown (Newsletter), Vol. 7, No. 1, Jan 2005

This list includes “…only those corporations that put up at least $75,000 in the ’04 presidential and congressional elections, with at least two thirds of their money going to Republicans”. Lists of Computer/Telecommunications and Entertainment and Lodging have been omitted from Hightower’s original list.
