California gaming tribes rank near top of nation's political givers
California: Three of California's Indian gaming interests rank in a "Top 10" list of the country's special-interest donors. The list was released by the National Institute on Money in State Politics and the Center for Responsive Politics.
Tribes in the Top 10 list are:
- The Pechanga Band of Luiseno Mission Indians. The Pechanga Band put $44 million into campaigns in 2008. This put the tribe at #2, behind only the National Education Association.
- The Morongo Band of Mission Indians. This tribe put $39 million into politics in 2008, making it #4 on the Top 10 list.
- The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians gave $22 million, putting it at #10.
- The Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation was noted in the study as having given $7 million to campaigns in 2008, although it did not rank in the Top 10.
