Oil and gas industry funding Clinton over Trump: report

The Hill reports:
Oil and gas executives usually give their money to Republicans, but this presidential election it's Democrat Hillary Clinton who's getting most of their cash, according to a new Wall Street Journal report.

Oil and gas executives and employees have given Clinton's campaign and joint fundraising committee nearly double what they have donated to the GOP nominee, Donald Trump.

While Clinton has raised tens of millions more than Trump across all industries, the oil and gas sector's outsized contributions stand out.
Imagine that.
