(WASHINGTON) #USPresidentialCampaign2020 Lobbying Industry has donated over $545,000 with 80% going to Democrats as many candidates have vowed not to take funds from lobbyists based on the Federal Election Commission data released on Oct. 16., through third-quarter 2019 fundraising #AceNewsDesk reports | Ace News Services

#AceNewsReport – Dec.01: The lobbying industry has donated $545,173 to 2020 presidential campaigns with nearly 80 percent going to Democratic candidates, even as many of those hopefuls vow not to take donations from lobbyists.Over $114,498 of that has gone to President Donald Trump’s re-election while the rest, $430,675, has been given to Democrats, including those who have dropped out of the race, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics: The total is based on the Federal Election Commission data released on Oct. 16., through third-quarter 2019 fundraising.The numbers paint a complicated picture: Democratic candidates and their progressive allies in the current cycle have put new scrutiny on lobbyists as well as on taking money from other special interest or corporate groups. But that hasn’t completely stopped the flow of money to candidates and campaigns.K Street’s top ranks are filled with former Democrats, many with ties to the candidates: And watchdog groups say that while the focus is on federally registered lobbyists, donations from others tied to the industry, such as state- and local-level lobbyists, often trickle through.
