You’ll hear plenty this week about Mitt Romney raising money in the Hamptons, and so I thought it was worth putting things in perspective. According to data from the Center for Responsive Politics, Romney has reported $119,550 from the 13 zip codes that count as The Hamptons according to Wikipedia. Obama has raised $165,867.
Sagaponack and Sag Harbor really don’t like Romney.
This data doesn’t include RNC, DNC, or SuperPAC data. It also obviously doesn’t include Romney’s July fundraiser in the Hamptons. It’s up-to-date as of May 31, I believe.
UPDATE: Sagaponack (11962) was named by Business Week “The most expensive small town in America.” The median home there sells for $4.4 million. That means that half the homes there are worth more. Sagaponack is the orange portion of the bars above. It favored Obama $12,700 to $0.
