Medford Campaign Donations Overwhelmingly Favor Obama

A look at presidental election fundraising data.

President Barack Obama has received 13 times as many donations and 8 times as much money from Medford residents than Republican challenger Mitt Romney since the start of 2011, according to data from the Federal Elections Commission.

Obama's 295 donations from Medford residents from January 2011 to June 2012 total $46,452. Romney's 22 donations from Medford residents total $6,340, according to the data.

Despite being its former Governor, Romney has been significantly out-raised by Obama in Massachusetts, though the ratio of the disparity in Medford is even greater than statewide figures.

Obama has received $9,518,733 in donations from Massachusetts residents since the start of 2011, while Romney has received $5,298,938 from Bay Staters.

Ron Paul, who has not withdrawn from the race for the Republican nomination even though he won't have the delegates to beat Romney, has received $369,683 from Massachusetts residents.

Stevie B, My Response To Your Questions Are Hidden Away In The Cayman Islands, And The Rest Of My Answers Are In Swiss Bank Accounts. Again, Who Did You Say Was Lying?

Yes. Change needed on the city, state and national level. Thanks Medford for our condemned public buildings, crumbling high school and poor traffic enforcement. Maybe the guy here running the place needs more time.

Great call Stevie. I forgot about that one. What a disgusting & shameful thing to say. But because it came from the most brilliant man to ever be elected president, it was of course swept under the carpet and deemed a non-issue by the sycophantic mainstream media. So most people never even heard about it. Imagine if Mitt said something like that? The lapdog media would be playing it around the clock.
