Campaign 2012

Romney's Donors Nowhere Near Maxed Out

Less than one percent of all the donors who have given $200 or more to Mitt Romney have reached the limit they can contribute to his campaign, Reuters reports.

That means Romney, who has beaten President Obama in campaign fundraising for two months straight, could see an even bigger windfall down the road, with these donors able to contribute thousands more.


Romney has some 19,000 named donors who have given at least $200, while Obama has about 38,000.

Romney's Victory Fund  -- which combines campaign, RNC and some state parties -- has pulled in $140 million since being formed in April, according to Politico. Such groups can pull in the maximum of $75,800 from individual donors, while presidential campaigns are limited to $5,000. Party committees can take in donations of $30,800 per individual.

According to Reuters, only 40 donors have given $75,800 to Romney, compared to 29 donors who have given the maximum to Obama.
