slides: Scott Brown Leads All Senators in Donations from the Gun Lobby

Saturday, December 15, 2012

 

Lame duck U.S. Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) is the leading recipient of campaign donations from the gun lobby according to a review of data published by OpenSecrets.org - a resource for reviewing federal campaign contributions, lobbying data and analysis.

GoLocal reviewed both the 2010 and 2012 election cycles and found that Senator Brown raised for more gun lobby-related funds than any other member of the United States Senate.

In the 2010 election cycle his $23,000 plus gun lobby donations was second only to US Senator David Vitters' $25,953. And, in 2010 election cycle, Brown lead the U.S. Senate candidates with $30,275.

While GOP members dominated the top five list, the gun lobby directed more than $15,000 to U.S. Senator and Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV). Reid was in the top 10.

See the full list and the combined donations.

METHODOLOGY: The numbers on this page are based on contributions from PACs and individuals giving $200 or more.
