Barack Obama And Ron Paul Receive The Most Contributions From Military Personnel

According to a study released by the non-partisan group Center for Responsive Politics, Barack Obama and Ron Paul receive the most campaign contributions from people who work for the four branches of the military and National Guard. Obama, who has never served in the military, brought in the most money from the military. Obama has called for our troops to be out of Iraq by 2008. Ron Paul is the only Republican candidate currently running that has come out against the war. He comes in second in contributions from people in the service. John McCain, who supports our efforts in Iraq, comes in third. The center counted the money that was donated by those that call the Air Force, Army, Marines, Navy and National Guard as an employer. Overall most contributions from this group go to Republican candidates when you add in Congress. This year 40% goes to Democrats and 60% to Republicans. For Democrats this is up from 23% in 2004.
