TALLAHASSEE — Trish Duggan, a wealthy Florida Scientologist, has become one of the GOP's top donors, including giving $4 million alone to a pro-Donald Trump super PAC, campaign finance records show.

Duggan and a trust in her name have each given $2 million to America First Action, the biggest Trump-aligned super PAC of the 2020 cycle. The group has spent more than $40 million on TV ads and airtime reservations so far this cycle in key swing states, including Florida.

Duggan divorced her husband, billionaire venture capitalist Bob Duggan, in 2017. The Tampa Bay Times reported in 2019 that the couple had donated more than $360 million to the Church of Scientology, which has a huge footprint in Clearwater and has long clashed with city leaders.
