Patty Murray (D - K Street)

In the US Senate, only Harry Reid pulls down more lobbyist bucks. Mom in tennis shoes my butt!
Lobbyists have given $666,000 to Sen. Patty Murray's reelection efforts since 2009, making her the second-highest recipient of the industry's political contributions among all members of Congress, according to a new analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics.

Only Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid took in more money from lobbyists during the current election cycle, the analysis found.

As we reported previously, lobbyists are the biggest donors to Murray's campaign and to M-PAC, her leadership political-action committee. Lawyers are a close second, with $664,000 in contributions. Through end of July, Murray has raised a total of $13.1 million for her reelection and PAC.
