MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A tally shows filmmaker Steven Spielberg, the most commercially successful director of all time, donated $20,000 to Gov. Tony Evers’ campaign.

Spielberg and his wife, actress Kate Capshaw, were among 31 people who gave Evers the maximum $20,000.

That’s according to information released Tuesday by the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign.

Those 31 top donors gave Evers a total of $620,000.

Of the $10.1 million Evers raised over the first half of the year, about $4.3 million came in cash and in-kind donations from the Wisconsin Democratic Party.

The Aug. 9 Republican primary will determine who Evers faces in November.
