On this "Super Tuesday" primary, it's worth noting that members of the US military favored antiwar candidates with their campaign dollars. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, they gave the most money to Texas Republican Ron Paul, who voted against the Iraq war and advocates a complete and immediate withdrawal of all US troops, with at least $212,000 in contributions. Barack Obama was second with about $94,000.
Here at War Comes Home, we first noticed this trend back in October, when the Houston Chronicle reported Paul and Obama were getting the most money from members of the Armed Services.
