W.V. Candidate Contributions

Hillary Clinton has eclipsed all other presidential candidates among West Virginia political contributors.

Clinton has attracted more than one of every $3 state residents have given to the 2008 field.

The latest Federal Election Commission reports show Clinton collected $188,000 from Mountain State residents during the July 1st to September 30 filing period. That raised her in-state total to nearly $227,000.

Rudy Giuliani kept his in-state edge among Republicans. He raised more than $84,400 to boost that total above $113,500.

Fred Thompson entered the GOP race September 6, and received $26,350 from West Virginians before the reporting period ended.

Thompson, Giuliani and Clinton were the only candidates to raise more than $10,000 from West Virginians in the third quarter.

All told, state residents have given $584,000 to 16 White House contenders.
