Saturday, December 15, 2012
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.
