Guess: Who Got Most Local Contributions?

Residents of Dallas and Hiram have given to Republican presidential candidates much more than the total $605 Barack Obama has received.

We won’t find out until this evening which presidential candidate earned the most votes from Paulding residents heading to the polls, but in terms of campaign donations, one person has come out on top—Newt Gingrich.

Based on campaign contributions made though Jan. 31 as reported by the Federal Election Commission, residents in ZIP codes 30132 and 30157 (Dallas) and 30141 (Hiram) gave $13,122 to presidential candidates for the 2012 election cycle.

No Hiram residents contributed to President Barack Obama, but Dallas donors gave the sitting president $605—more than the donations Republicans Mitt Romney and Michelle Bachmann received from both cities. Republicans in all received $12,517 in contributions from residents of the three ZIP codes.

Here’s how much each candidate has received:

  • Newt Gingrich—$3,025
  • Rick Perry—$2,500
  • Rick Santorum—$2,500
  • Herman Cain—$2,040
  • Ron Paul—$1,734
  • Barack Obama—$605
  • Michelle Bachmann—$468
  • Mitt Romney—$250
