AT&T, which gave $4.6 million, was the largest contributor. Boeing and Chevron each gave $1 million.
Microsoft employees had contributed more than $814,000 to Obama’s re-election campaign — more than any other company’s employees, according to Bloomberg News, which cited research group Center for Responsive Politics.
