1. Florida

Federal spending per capita: $30,318
Total federal spending: $577.80 billion
Number of residents: 19.1 million

The state of Florida, the second battleground state on the list, was the recipient of the most federal funds both in total and on a per capita basis. It’s similar to second-place Louisiana in that one of the 10 prime awards it received went to the Health and Human Services, and the rest to Homeland Security.

Other than the Harris Corp., a telecommunications company, the top prime awards contractors were aerospace and defense companies. These include Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, General Dynamics and Northrop Grumman.
