I know, Costco’s not a person. But if it was, I guess it would be Barack Obama’s best buddy.
The site GoodGuide.com shows you which political parties that corporations & their employees donate to. According to them, between 2004 through the middle of 2008, Costco employees gave over $700,000 to Democratic candidates and only a little over $19,000 to Republicans.
Costco was the most Democratic-leaning of the retail companies shown. Wal-Mart and Target were heavily Republican-leaning, with Target the most Republican.
I’m not so political, so I can go to any of them with a clear conscious! (Ooops, conscience, I can never get those 2 straight!)
