Obama does well with military, environmentalists

A report by the non-partisan Center for Responsive Politics shows that Barack Obama leads all other presidential candidates in donations from people in the military. Ron Paul, another candidate who like Obama opposes the Iraq War, was in second place.

Good news also comes to the Obama campaign from the League of Conservation Voters that rates Barack highest on environmental issues among all the presidential candidates. Obama had a 96 rating compared to Dennis Kucinich who came in second with a 92 rating.

Iowa endorsements
