But John McCain is the "anti-lobbyist" candidate, right!?
The non-partisan group Campaign Money Watch has come up with another startling figure for those who follow the presidential money chase.
According to an analysis performed by the group, McCain's top fundraisers and aides have collected nearly $1 billion in fees from U.S. companies in the past decade -- specifically, $930,949,819. Using numbers provided by the Center for Responsive Politics, the group also found that officials of those very same companies have given nearly $12 million to McCain's presidential campaign, so far.
How's that for a talking point?
