For the most part, Newport News Shipbuilding covered its bases with campaign contributions in Virginia's 2013 statewide elections.

In the race for governor, it gave $25,000 each to eventual winner Terry McAuliffe and his Republican opponent, Ken Cuccinelli.

For attorney general, winner Mark Herring pocketed $2,500 from the shipyard, as did Mark Obenshain.

The exception was in the lieutenant governor's race. Democrat Ralph Northam recieved $5,000. Republican E.W. Jackson got zip.

Northam captured 55 percent of the vote in beating Jackson, who had 44 percent.

The disparity in bank accounts was more pronounced. Northam outspent Jackson slightly more than 2-to-1.

All of this information comes from the Virginia Public Access Project.

The shipyard is a division of Huntington Ingalls Industries, the nation's only builder of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers and one of two manufacturers of nuclear-powered submarines.
