Gene Kennedy Reporting If you're curious how much Utahns are forking out to presidential candidates, a new Web link has the answer.
The Federal Election Commission now has a map on its site which allows you to click on an area and see how much money is going to our presidential candidates. The site is www.fec.gov.
The data is broken down by zip codes. In Utah, not surprisingly the Republicans have the most money. Mitt Romney leads the pack with about $2.7 million.
As we take a closer look in the Salt Lake Valley, you can see who the top donors in this area are. It's important to know the data is as of April. So, for example, John McCain and Rudolph Giuliani have raised more money than the Web site says. It will be updated in July.
But as of April in Utah, McCain comes in a distant second to Romney, with just over $110,000. Giuliani has just over $80,000.
Clicking on the Democrats, Barack Obama came in first with just close to $30,000. Hillary Clinton comes in second. But you can see Democrats have received far less in donations from Utah than Republicans.
Again, you can can do this with any state, and the data will be updated in July.
