And the Winner of Who Loves the Military Industrial Complex is…

Megan Carpentier at the Raw Story asks Which presidential candidates have earned the defense industry’s support?

The answer:

President Obama is leading the pack in donations from the defense industry: according to the Center for Responsive Politics, he’d taken in almost $112,000 from defense industry donors through December 2011, despite not accepting any donations from super PACs or lobbyists. (Complete fourth quarter numbers were only released yesterday, so break-downs aren’t yet available by industry.)
