Bill Clinton's Florida friends

The list of donors to former President Bill Clinton's charitable foundation includes a few familiar Florida names:

Miamian Andrew Tobias, the Democratic National Committee treasurer, gave more than $100,000 but less than $250,000, the donor list reports. Tobias is also one of a number of Miami contributors to president-elect Barack Obama's inauguration.

Democratic fundraisers Carole Shields Westbrook and Hugh Westbrook also contributed between $500,000 and $1 million to the Clinton Foundation. Miami developer Paul Cejas, a Clinton supporter, also contributed.

The Washington Post says the donors also include sugar baron Alfonso Fanjul, whom it noted "has heavily lobbied Washington and Clinton about his business interests."

Clinton agreed to release the list of donors as part of Hillary Clinton's new job as Secretary of State in the Obama administration.
