The Federal Election Commission recently released the names of people who contributed $250 or more to presidential campaigns, with two camps hoasting a prominent Harvard professor in the their ranks. The John Glenn Presidential Committee reported a $362 contribution from Otto Eckstein. Warburg Professor of Economics. Mendale For President received $250 from... Otto Eckstein.
"Actually I gave a small amount to Frits Hollings (Senator from South Carolins) also," Eckstein, who also works for economic forecasting firm Data Resources Inc., said yesterday. "I would like to have a Democrat win," he explained.
Eckstein, who served on the Council of Economic Advisers under Lyndon, B. Johnson, said he has "no interest to go back to Washington," and that, although he has consulted with all three candidates, he is not formally advising any of them.
The size of a contribution does indicate the intensity of support, Eckstien said, adding that Glenn "has the best chance of running."
