Wal-Mart's Payouts

Arkansas

Total contributions: $109,756

The Arkansas Republican Party this election year received $10,000 from Wal-Mart. Republican Governor Mike Huckabee, who has received campaign funds from members of the Walton family, recently called Wal-Mart’s critics a “traveling circus.” When contacted, Huckabee responded: “The contributions I have received from the Walton family have nothing to do with my speaking up in support of Wal-Mart. The company employs thousands of people in Arkansas alone, they contribute billions of dollars a year to our state's economy, and they are a tremendous corporate citizen.”
