Google's political action committee gave more contributions to Republicans candidates than to Democrats, according to an analysis by Consumer Watchdog, a staunch critic of the company.
Between July and October, 55 percent of Google NetPAC's contributions went to Republicans ($57,500). Democrats received 45 percent of contributions ($47,500).
This a change from the last filing, in which Democrats received 58 percent of the contributions and Republicans received 42 percent ($14,000).
Consumer Watchdog's Glenn Simpson speculated the change anticipated Republicans picking up seats in the midterms.
