President Barack Obama and the presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney have each raised nearly $2 million from Virginia residents who have given at least $200, but the former Massachusetts governor has a $100,000 edge, according to a new report by a nonpartisan group tracking campaign funds.
More than half of the funds raised by each candidate between January and May have come from Northern Virginia according to the Virginia Public Access Project.
Romney has raised $1.9 million from those who have given $200 or more — 78 percent of it from Northern Virginia, according toVPAP. Obama has raised $1.8 million, 70 percent of which is from Northern Virginia, according to VPAP.
Romney has raised a total of $3.8 million from large and small donors in Virginia. Obama has raised a total of $3.6 million from Virginia donors large and small, according to the latest report from Open Secrets, a nonpartisan group that tracks campaign contributions.
The VPAP analysis of donations from large contributors comes as both campaigns are deploying their campaign workers across Virginia, which experts predict will be one of this election's most important battleground states.
