Obama and Universities, the Love is Mutual

OpenSecrets.org has a new analysis of campaign donations that confirms the earlier analyses I did here and here.  Universities are a significant source of financial support for Barak Obama.

They write: “Educators contributed at least $2.3 million to his campaign in June and July, surpassed only by lawyers, who make up Obama’s top-giving industry since the campaign’s start, and retirees. Nine of Obama’s top 25 contributors—based on contributions from employees and their families—are universities: University of California, Harvard, Columbia, Stanford, University of Michigan, Georgetown, University of Chicago, University of Washington and University of Pennsylvania, in descending order.”
