Largest energy utility in U.S. pledges $32 million to DNC

Jim Rogers, CEO of the Charlotte based Duke Energy, appeared on CNN Monday morning to discuss President Obama and the question as to whether or not a potential president should have CEO experience.

Rogers, who heads the largest energy company in the United States, gave President Obama high marks, stating that he took the reins of government at a very low point and made great strides in making the country more energy efficient through the development of natural gas.

But to some, Rogers' praise of Obama has a hollow ring, considering that Duke Energy pledged $32 million to the Democratic National Convention, which is meeting this week in Charlotte. Duke also provided an open line of credit to the DNC in the amount of $10 million.

Rogers himself serves as co-chair of the DNC host committee and is well known for his support for Obama and other Democrats.
