He was one of the key money men behind a PAC that helped knock off a conservative legislator and facilitate a leftist takeover of Lee County a few years ago. Now, Kirk Bradley — a Democrat registered to vote in Orange County — is opening up his wallet to aid Phil Berger’s Senate Republicans.

This generosity can’t be just about wanting to see the GOP do well.
