Though he’s no Donald Trump, Jeb Bush won’t have any problems financing his 2016 presidential campaign.

The Hill reports Jeb’s super-PAC — Right to Rise — has raised a staggering $103 million over the past six months, with 24 individuals contributing $1 million or more. Additionally, it looks like Jeb has received a plethora of support, at least in monetary terms, from prominent owners of several NFL and MLB franchises.

According to the Federal Elections Commission, Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder gave “Right to Rise” $100,000, while Tennessee Titans and New York Jets owners Bob McNair and Woody Johnson both gifted $500,000. Johnson also serves as Bush’s national finance chairman.

Additionally, Texas Rangers owner Ray Davis donated $100,000. It should be noted that Jeb’s older brother — former President George W. Bush — was part of an investment group that purchased the Rangers for $89 million back in 1989.
