Yesterday we carried an article on the Federal Election Commission’s online guide to see who has given what amount to each presidential nominee.
Thus far in the 2012 campaign cycle, Burlington residents have made 222 contributions to the presidential campaigns of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, the Democratic and Republican Party nominees.
A total of 180 contributions from Burlington were made to the Obama campaign, while 42 contributions were made to the Romney campaign.
But who gave what? Where did Burlington's top donors put their money?
According to the list, the top four donations, each at the $2,500 level, all went to Mitt Romney. Obama did score one $600 donation and the majority of $500 donations went to the president.
