But Obama has not always led the charge for military campaign cash.
While the president has outraised Romney, Republican candidates this election cycle have earned more money from veterans of most branches of the military, including the Army, Navy and Marine Corps, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. That is, in large part, because of Republican presidential nominee Ron Paul's strong military following.
Prior to his departure from the campaign, Paul had a monopoly on the military market. At one point, Paul raised nearly double the military campaign cash as Obama. It wasn't until March that Obama's campaign began making up ground.
