The conservative Michele. Bachmann. Smart Politics: Bachmann Raising Significantly Larger Out-of-State Funds Per Capita from Obama States than McCain States
In fact, 10 of the top 12 locales contributing at the highest rate to Bachmann are in Obama Territory, led by the District of Columbia, which sets the pace at a rate of $688.37 per 100,000 residents.
Only the red states of Nebraska (#2, $583.15) and Wyoming (#4, $478.72) crack the Top 12, with deep blue states like Maryland (#3, $516.54), Illinois #7 ($324.57), Vermont (#8, $321.92), and California (#9, $279.57) all perched in the Top 10 in per capita contributions to one of the U.S. Houses' most conservative members.
Can I take credit for Illinois?:) We know Obama well. Put it that way. And have great respect for savvy women bucking the tide in Blue States:)
