DENVER BUSINESS JOURNAL - A New York Times list of 158 families that have donated nearly half the money so far for the 2016 presidential race includes a single Coloradan.

She is Patricia Stryker, a Fort Collins medical-technology heiress, philanthropist and winery owner who is a frequent backer of liberal causes.

The Times says Stryker has donated some $750,000 so far to groups involved in the race for the White House.

Forbes last month said Stryker has given $750,000 to two political action committees that support Hillary Clinton's presidential bid, in addition to a $300,000 gift to a PAC promoting campaign finance reform -- a cause which just might preclude her big gifts to promote presidential races in the future.

The magazine estimates that Pat Stryker, 59, is worth $2.3 billion. She is the grandchild of Homer Stryker, who founded the medical technology company Stryker Corp. She owns California's Stryker Sonoma winery.
