Who Wal-Mart owns in Minnesota

Posted by: Hammer / 2:10 PM

Good rundown from the Minnesota Independent of Wal-Mart's lobbying efforts here in Minnesota.

Minnesota's Congressional delegation has benefited handsomely from Wal-Mart's newfound political largesse. Since 2002 the company has provided $127,500 in contributions to the state's legislators, according to a database maintained by the Center for Responsive Politics. The biggest recipient of Wal-Mart funds among Minnesota's current delegation? Rep. John Kline. The Second District Republican received $21,500 from the corporate PAC in the last four election cycles. Right behind him is Sen. Norm Coleman, with contributions of $21,000.
