Bob Perry does not often step into the media spotlight, but the Houston homebuilder has a track record as one of the Republican Party's most reliable mega-donors.

Perry helped bankroll the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth ads that attacked presidential hopefully John Kerry in 2004, and he has generously supported conservative candidates and causes in Texas.

So far this cycle, Perry has given $4.75 million to Restore Our Future, a pro-Romney super PAC, but also received a refund of $750,000 from the group. A super PAC associated with Texas Gov. Rick Perry got $100,000. Perry also gave $2.5 million to American Crossroads, the Karl Rove-backed super PAC.

Perry was the top super PAC donor in 2010, giving a total of $7 million to American Crossroads as Republicans posted gains in the House and Senate.
