Ohioans Slower to Donate to Obama

President Barack Obama’s fundraising in Ohio is down about $200,000 from four years ago, and the state’s Republican chairman attributes the difference to voters’ frustration with the president’s job performance.
According to a Columbus Dispatch analysis of a study completed by the Center for Responsive Politics, the Obama campaign has only about two-thirds as much money as it did at the same point in his first presidential run.
Ohio GOP Chairman Kevin DeWine said Obama was elected on the promise of “hope and change” but claims his “job-killing regulations and mandates have left Ohio families and job creators with less hope and a lot less change.”
The Obama campaign, however, says the numbers don’t tell the full story. The difference this time around is that Obama is not campaigning against several Democratic contenders, campaign organizers said.
“Ohioans continue to show strong backing for President Obama and his agenda,” said Obama for America spokesman Tom Reynolds. “Across the state, we have a broad base of grass-roots supporters, which is in stark contrast to the way other campaigns are running their operations, planning to rely on millions of dollars from Washington lobbyists and other special interests.”
The campaign says that even though the Ohio numbers are down, the national numbers have doubled over the past four years.
