Colts’ Manning a Fan of Bush
At Monday's White House celebration of the Indianapolis Colts’ NFL title, President Bush and Super Bowl MVP Peyton Manning looked like the best of friends—with good reason.
Federal Election Commission records show that Manning gave $2,000, the maximum allowed donation, to Bush’s re-election campaign in 2004. The former University of Tennessee star also gave $4,200 to Bob Corker to help him win his Senate seat from the Volunteer State in November.
