    "Corporations aren't allowed to donate money to candidates. But executives and employees of companies and their spouses can each give up to $2,300 to a candidate for the primary campaign and another $2,300 for the general election. Candidates must make public the names and employers of people who donate $200 or more, a group that the Center for Responsive Politics says mostly come from executive ranks."

    "Employees of financial-services, insurance and real-estate companies have donated to Obama over McCain by almost 2-to-1 – and favored Clinton by even more. Health care and pharmaceutical companies have given three times as much to each of the two Democrats as to McCain. Defense companies put McCain ahead of Obama, but behind Clinton. Energy, construction and agriculture interests have given more to both Democrats. Only in the category of transportation has McCain outraised Obama and Clinton."
