Priorities USA Action, the super PAC supporting President Obama, has been struggling, raising just $6 million last month—and one-sixth of that came from a single source: Actor Morgan Freeman is putting his money where his mouth is, Politico reports, donating a cool million bucks to the super PAC. In a statement, Freeman praised Obama, saying he has "done a remarkable job in historically difficult circumstances." He specifically lauded the end of combat operations in Iraq, Wall Street reforms, ObamaCare, his choices in Supreme Court justices, and the Detroit bailout.
