Pennsylvanians so far have given $3 million to presidential candidates, and about half has gone to President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign.
Figures from the Federal Election Commission through Sept. 30 show Obama has collected about $1.5 million from donors in the state, and the many Republican candidates have each collected less than $500,000 in Pennsylvania.
The Associated Press has the breakdown of the three leading GOP candidates’ Pennsylvania donations:
Mitt Romney: $460,000
Rick Santorum: $360,000
Rick Perry: $285,000
More than 60 percent of the overall donations coming out of Pennsylvania are from the Philadelphia area.
