Across the full House, members who voted for the Pentagon budget increase received 2.5x more campaign/PAC money from military contractors than those who voted against it. This disparity was more pronounced among Democrats than Republicans—for Democrats, it was 3.9x; Republicans, 2.4x—but was clearly a theme in both parties.
Thanks for your time,
