Health care, telecommunications and defense industry workers are fueling President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign, even as Wall Street walks away from his candidacy.
The U.S. will maintain the world’s “finest, most capable military” amid defense spending cuts to create a “leaner” force as conflicts end in Iraq and Afghanistan, President Barack Obama said.
Four years ago, Barack Obama became the first Democratic presidential nominee in at least two decades to outspend the Republican challenger. The incumbent president shouldn’t expect the same advantage this time.
