The Tribune-Democrat (PA) reports that “Sen. Bernie Sanders may fall short of winning the Democratic presidential nomination, but it won’t be for lack of support from ranks of the U.S. military.”  

“Sanders has gotten more contributions from those who work for the Department of Defense or a branch of the military than any other candidate, according to a new analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonpartisan group that tracks campaign funding.”  

“Sanders has received $374,600 from the military, surpassing $247,649 raised by presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump’s $15,502.”
