Ellis County donors give to presidential candidates
The Ellis County Press
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Ellis County has become an ATM of sorts for some presidential candidates, as residents here have contributed to the likes of Hillary Rodham Clinton and Republican Sen. Fred Thompson, with a few down-ballot candidates receiving funds as well.
