Where the Candidates Got their Cash

Hillary Clinton made her political debut designing Arkansas education reforms in the 1980s that have been copied by other states ever since. But she trails Democratic rival Sen Barack Obama (D-IL) in campaign donations from education interests.

The Washington Post adds up contributions form key industries to see where the candidates are getting their cash.
  • Education: Barack Obama -- $696,076
  • Insurance: Christopher Dodd -- $405,550
  • Telecom: John McCain -- $123,600
  • Gambling: Rudy Giuliani -- $118,200
  • Lobbyists: Hillary Clinton -- $234,550
The Center for Responsive Politics has analysis of lots of other industries.
