Johnson & Johnson's ($JNJ) PAC has donated $642,700 this election cycle, putting more than $424,200 into the hands of individual candidates and sending $218,500 to other PACs. About 57% of J&J's candidate spending went to Republicans, including $10,000 donations to Speaker of the House John Boehner and healthcare-reform opponent Rep. Eric Cantor.

On the PAC side of the world, J&J directed 57% of its donations to Republican-leaning committees, but its biggest individual contributions were split evenly between Democratic and Republican congressional PACs.

That's for JJPAC; the contributions from J&J employees, however, tell a different partisan story. Individual donors who listed J&J as their employer have kicked in $166,169 this cycle, with about 75% of that going to Democratic candidates.

Top candidates: $10,000 each for Reps. Lance Leonard (R-NJ), John Boehner (R-OH), Dave Camp (R-MI), Fred Upton (R-MI), Eric Cantor (R-VA) and Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-NJ).

Top PACs: $30,000 each for National Republican Senatorial Committee, National Republican Congressional Committee, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
