Another article in a local paper, here the Kansas City Star, about the economic effect of the KC-X contract. The article spells out the economic effect of the win to the Wichita, KS area. Similar articles have been running in the Alabama papers about how great the win by Northrop-Grumman and EADS would be to the Mobile area. One can safely assume that the Congressmen and Senators for the various locales are involved in lobbying the Air Force on this. Not that any would be so crude as to write “award it to company X as it brings Y jobs to my district. I am sure they are all using needs of the nations and best product for their communications. For a good example of companies lobbying the Hill for their support see this article.
