Taylor Swift certainly talked a big game by endorsing 2 candidates in Tennessee, but a bunch of other celebs are doing more than talking — they’re paying to support their fave Democrats. 

We did some digging into 2018 Federal Election Commission filings to find out which A-listers are donating, and how much they’re throwing down heading into the midterms. Out of the group we found, Eva Longoria actually donated the most — a little more than $40k just since the spring.

Most of her cash is supporting Missouri incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill. Here are the other big spenders: 

— Susan Sarandon … $29,574 to Democratic PACs supporting NY, WV, HI and TX candidates

— Rosie O’Donnell … $29,243 for NY, IL, MA and IA candidates

— Jimmy Kimmel … $26,701, mostly for NV Congresswoman Jacky Rosen‘s Senate run

— Matt Damon … $10,800 

— Ben Affleck … $6,270 

Kimmel fans will notice, he’s got his nemesis, Damon, beat again. The saga continues. 

As for T-Swift, we know her vocal support for 2 Dems in her home state spurred hundreds of thousands to register to vote ahead of Nov. 6 — a crucial contribution to the electoral process.

As far as financial contributions, though, we weren’t able to find any … so far.
