(KSL News) Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has certainly raised a lot of campaign money in Utah. But it turns out a lot of that money has been spent here as well.

In a copyrighted story, the Deseret Morning News reports Romney has spent more than $605,000 in campaign money right here in Utah.

About 70 percent of it paid strategists, hired to help Romney figure out how to raise more money.

Some money was spent on things like catering and photography at campaign events.

About $30,000 was spent at a Cedar Hills company for Mitt Romney bobblehead dolls. The dolls were given to donors who gave at least $96 to the Romney campaign during its "Sign Up America" day that sought to gain 24,000 new supporters in 24 hours.
