WASHINGTON (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who is
out-fundraising President Barack Obama by impressive margins, is attracting
thousands of donors this summer from traditionally Democratic areas of the
United States, collecting millions of dollars in even progressive
communities from New York to Los Angeles, according to an analysis by The
Associated Press of new campaign data.
Donors from tony neighborhoods of Manhattan to even the famously liberal
Castro neighborhood in San Francisco helped Romney and the GOP outraise
Obama by more than $25 million in July, beating him and the Democratic Party
in contributions for a third consecutive month, the AP analysis showed.
