According to the year-to-date reports filed with the Federal Election Commission on Oct. 15, the bulk of Romney's Maryland contributions came from Potomac, Bethesda and Chevy Chase residents, totalling $355,615 of the $563,557 in contributions he received from the state. Those communities also donated $698,791 to Obama, who has raised $1.76 million in Maryland.

Adding to the total $964,550 that Marylanders gave Republican presidential hopefuls, Texas Gov. Rick Perry raised $133,925 since entering the race in August. Marylanders gave Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, $106,572; and Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., $48,306.

Paul has received the greatest number of contributions from Maryland residents with 584 individual contributions, followed by Romney with 502 contributions, Bachmann at 172 contributions and Perry with 85 contributions.

Paul has received 361 individual donations at $100 or less, raising $22,667. Thirty-three of those contributions were for $20.12, which is the lowest suggested donation on Paul's campaign website.

Damascus resident Eric Heyse (is he a forum member?) made 10 of those $20.12 contributions.

That is what I care about, 584 primary votes compared to 502 primary votes to 172 primary votes to 85 primary votes.
