Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign coffers are being filled more from California than New York, far different from when she ran for the White House in 2008.

"Her fundraising events are all totally sold out," Marc Nathanson, the California investor and a formidable Clinton super-PAC donor, told The Hill.

So far in this election cycle, Clinton's super PAC and campaign has raised $32.7 million from California donors versus $14.1 million from New York.

The $29.3 million that went to Clinton from New York and $26.4 million from California during her failed 2008 primary campaign, according to the Hill.

The former secretary of state also financed two Senate campaigns with money from Wall Street.

The pattern mirrors similar efforts by President Barack Obama during his two White House runs, the Hill reports. Some of his key donors were DreamWorks Producer Jeffrey Katzenberg and actor George Clooney.

President Obama also heavily courted contributors from Silicon Valley.

"She’s always been popular in California," Jeffrey Bleich, a San Francisco lawyer and former U.S. ambassador to Australia under the president, told the Hill. "And now the Obama supporters are supporting her as well, so it doesn’t surprise me that her numbers have gone up."
