SD Ranks 49th In Presidential Campaign Contributions
February 8, 2008, 12:13 PM
New information filed with the Federal Election Commission shows that South Dakotans' contributions to presidential candidates through the end of 2007 were next to last in the nation.
People from South Dakota gave $367,283, ranking the state ahead of only North Dakota. FEC records show North Dakotans gave just under $130,000.
Californians contributed more than $65 million, leading all states.
Two Republican candidates who got the most from South Dakotans last year are no longer in the race. Rudy Giuliani reported $115,900 from South Dakotans and Mitt Romney got $68,050.
