Obama-Romney have raised majority of Va. funds in NoVa

Presidential candidates Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama each have raised nearly $2 million total from Virginia individuals this year. More than half of each candidate's funds have been raised in Northern Virginia.


Romney holds an overall lead in Virginia among donors who have given at least $200. Romney has raised $1.9 million -- 78 percent from Northern Virginia. Obama's has raised $1.8 million -- 70 percent from Northern Virginia.


The figures do not include totals from small donors.


In May, Romney out-raised Obama $547,759 to $391,745, according to a list of itemized presidential donors from Virginia provided by the Virginia Public Access Project and the nonprofit Center for Responsive Politics. However, Obama received more donations: 855 donations of $200 or more compared to 515 for Romney.




VPAP has created a ZIP Code map that provides a side-by-side comparison of money raised by Obama and Romney:
