Find Oil Contributions per Politician (and Presidential Candidates!)

(Special Report) – From Oil Change International comes a new tool that lets you track oil industry campaign contributions to any and every U.S. politician: Follow the Oil Money.

With a simple name or zip code search you can see how much money your local politician is receiving in campaign contributions from oil companies.

Even better, the site shows how much money current presidential candidates receive.

1. Hillary Clinton (D) $235,250 -- Biggest contributors: Global Partners LP, CAMA Intl and Exxon Mobil
2. John McCain (R) $206,935 -- Biggest contributors: Hess Corp and Glencore Ltd
3. Barack Obama (D) $110,412 -- Biggest contributors: Exxon Mobil and Hess Corp
4. Mike Huckabee (R) $18,700 -- Biggest contributor: Oil and Gas Producer

Note: Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney received more, though they now have dropped out.
