Among those who have given the maximum $2,000 donation to the Bush re-election campaign are Bill Gates, chairman of the Microsoft Corporation; Carleton S. Fiorina, the chief executive of the Hewlett-Packard Company; and Craig R. Barrett, the Intel Corporation's chief executive. John Chambers, chief executive of Cisco Systems Inc., also donated $2,000 to the Bush campaign, after donating $25,000 to the National Republican Senatorial Committee last year.
