Honeywell tops list of political contributors

Honeywell International’s political action committee is the top donor to House and Senate campaigns this election cycle, according to a new analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics. The aerospace and defense contractor, which was founded in Minneapolis in 1885, has doled out $3 million in federal campaign contributions this election cycle.

The political committee’s donations through the end of August already outstrip the $2.5 million it distributed during the 2008 election cycle. Every member of Minnesota’s delegation received money from the group: Reps. Tim Walz ($2,000), John Kline ($5,000), Erik Paulsen ($10,000), Betty McCollum ($4,000) Keith Ellison ($10,000), Michele Bachmann ($10,000), Collin Peterson ($1,000) and Jim Oberstar ($3,000), and Sens. Al Franken ($5,000) and Michele Bachmann ($5,000).
