Obama Beats Romney in Bain Donation Totals

by Brian Bolduc

The Washington Post reports:

Obama’s fundraising advantage is clear in the case of Bain Capital, the Boston-based private-equity firm that was co-founded by Romney, and where the Republican made his fortune. Not surprisingly, Romney has strong support at the firm, raking in $34,000 from 18 Bain employees, according to the analysis of data from the Center for Responsive Politics.

But Obama has outdone Romney on his own turf: collecting $76,600 from Bain Capital employees through September — and he needed only three donors to do it.

Where’s the loyalty?
