Hillary Clinton Dominates Bay Area Fundraising

Hillary Clinton is singlehandedly responsible for sweeping up over 60 percent of the $9.63 million that donors in the Bay Area contributed to presidential candidates across the political spectrum through September 30.

Clinton has reportedly raised $5.8 million in the blue-leaning Bay Area, almost nine times the amount her Republican rival Jeb Bush raised there, according to Josh Richman of the Contra Costa Times.

Bush, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Dr. Ben Carson have topped their Republican counterparts in Bay Area fundraising, followed by former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina.

Meanwhile, Democratic candidate and self-proclaimed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has raised $1.12 million in the Bay Area, which is more than each of the Republican candidates has raised, but reportedly about one-fifth of what Clinton has raised.

Billionaire Donald Trump has been mostly self-funding his campaign, but the love of his supporters earned him $3.9 million nationally, according to third quarter earnings that were posted in mid-October. Carson raised $20 million nationwide in the quarter, and Bush raised $13.4 million, while Cruz clocked in at $12 million, Fiorina at $6.8 million and Rubio at $6 million in Q3.
