Military Contributions Supports Ron Paul

Posted by nytexan on July 17, 2007

It’s interesting that the GOP continues to tell us that the withdrawal from Iraq is a slap in the face of the troops. Surprise the military isn’t contributing to the hawks.

In the recent 2nd Quarter report, Ron Paul, the staunchly anti-war GOP candidate is getting the most contributions from employees of the military. Spin that Bush.

H/T to The Spin Factor for digging through the reports to pull out this jewel.


RON PAUL: 24,965 [6,975] [6,765] [4,650] [5,075] [1,500]
McCain: 17,475 [6925] [6305] [1795] [800] [1600]
Romney: 3,551 [2,051] [0] [1500] [0]
Giuliani: 2,320 [1,450] [370] [250] [250]
Hunter: 1000 [0] [1000] [0]
Huckabee: 750 [250] [0] [500]
Tancredo: 350 [350] [0] [0]
Brownback: 71 [71] [0] [0]
Thompson: 0 [0] [0] [0]

Units are contributions in dollars by employees of the respective military organizations.

49.5% Ron Paul
34.6% McCain
7.0% Romney
4.6% Giuliani
2.0% Hunter
2.3% Others

*Note: These statistics include the contributions of employees who recorded or indicated their military branch. Contributions where no employer was specified were naturally not included.

**Edit: McCain and Ron Paul have USMC contributions which were overlooked. Their totals have been corrected. (6/17/07)
