  • Aug 15- U.S troops donate more money to Obama's campaign than McCain's

    WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. soldiers have donated more presidential
    campaign money to Democrat Barack Obama than to Republican John
    McCain, a reversal of previous campaigns in which military
    donations tended to favor GOP White House hopefuls, a nonpartisan
    group reported Thursday.

    Troops serving abroad have given nearly six times as much money
    to Obama's presidential campaign as they have to McCain's, the
    Center for Responsive Politics said.

    The results also are striking because they favored Obama, who
    never has served in the military. McCain meanwhile, is a decorated
    war veteran who spent nearly five years as a prisoner of war in
    Vietnam. The Arizona senator graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy
    and had a 22-year career as a naval aviator.

    Obama has opposed the war in Iraq and says he would withdraw
    combat troops within 16 months. McCain has been a steadfast
    supporter of the war, saying he would withdraw the troops only when
    conditions on the ground warrant it.

    "Obama will work tirelessly to uphold this nation's sacred
    trust with its veterans, to ensure they are not forgotten after
    they return home and he will provide our troops with the leadership
    they deserve, as well as the support they and their families
    need," Obama spokesman Nick Shapiro said.

    McCain's campaign played down the significance of the donations.

    "John McCain has been endorsed by more retired admirals and
    generals than Barack Obama has military donors," McCain spokesman
    Michael Goldfarb said in a statement.

    "We feel confident that many U.S. troops stationed overseas
    will support John McCain in the election this fall, but we suspect
    most are too busy doing the important work of defending this
    country than to make political contributions," Goldfarb said.

    The report tracked donations of $200 or more. It found that 859
    members of the military donated a total of $335,536 to Obama.
    McCain received $280,513 from 558 military donors.

    Among soldiers serving overseas at the time of their donations,
    134 gave a total of $60,642 to Obama while 26 gave a total of
    $10,665 to McCain. That was less than the amount received by
    Republican Ron Paul, who collected $45,512 from 99 soldiers serving
    abroad, the report said.
