A Haul in South
Fred Thompson remains a hometown boy.
The former Tennessee senator raised more money in his (original) home state than anywhere else over the past several months. (Thompson now lives much of the year in Virginia). Tennessee donors gave him $2.7 million of the $12.7 million he raised during the past five months. His adopted home state of Virginia produced $495,180 for his campaign, coming in fourth behind Texas ($1.3 million) and Florida ($540,231).
A closer look at the states that were a top source of cash for Thompson also provides a glimpse of his strength in the Deep South, at least by comparison to the rest of the country. Outside of the financial centers of New York and California, Thompson found the south to be friendly territory for fundraising.
Here is the top ten list for states where Thompson is rich in donors:
New York: $387,573
