GM gave a total of $26,000 to seven Republicans, including $2,000 to Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia, and a total of $21,000 to nine Democrats, including $1,000 to Rep. James E. Clyburn of South Carolina. (“A GM spokesman did not return a call seeking comment.”) The Washington Examiner has compiled a complete list of the beneficiaries of GM’s generosity.
