Rupert Murdoch’s close relationship with Republican Ohio gubernatorial candidate John Kasich inspired the $1 million contribution News Corp. gave to the Republican Governors Association, Murdoch tells Politico. He’s CEO of News Corp., which owns Fox News, where Kasich was a host.

Murdoch has proven his Republican bona fides this election cycle, as News Corp. also gave $1 million to the GOP-friendly U.S. Chamber of Commerce. While News Corp. donates to both parties, it has given much more to Republicans.
