Romney Contributions Down in Mass.

Contributions to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign have fallen off dramatically in Massachusetts, according to a report in the Boston Globe. The Globe reported Monday  the former Massachusetts governor raised about $2.1 million during the first six months of his 2012 run — nearly a million less than he raised during the same period in his 2008 campaign.
But the decline in Bay State donations apparently hasn’t hurt his overall fundraising nationwide, which remains fairly stable, according to the Globe.
The Romney campaign has raised about $34 million over the past six months, with California contributors leading the way, the Globe noted. Four years ago, Massachusetts led all other states in contributions, but that was when Romney still had a substantial fundraising base from his gubernatorial race in 2002.
“It’s a much broader campaign,” Romney adviser Ron Kaufman told the Globe. “Last time it was in many ways Massachusetts-centric.”
Kaufman also blamed the fall-off in Massachusetts donations to the economy.
“The recession has something to do with all the numbers everywhere,” he said. “We found people can’t give as much and can’t raise as much because their networks are smaller or poorer.”
