Barbara Streisand has made a contribution to the 3 leading contenders for the Democratic nomination, John Edwards, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
The maximum allowable amount for an individual to donate to a campaign is $2300. Streisand said that she wants to ensure that the front runners have a good financial backing to run good campaigns. She is excited about the strength of the Democratic contenders, and may yet give to other candidates as the race continues.
Streisand has previously been close to the Clinton family, and has given money for Hillary Clinton's Senate campaigns in New York.
