Romney outraised Obama in Virginia in May

Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney raised more money in Virginia in May than President Obama, according to new fundraising numbers released Monday.

Romney raised $547,759 among itemized 51 donors contributing $200 or more while Obama took in $391,745 from 855 contributors, according to the Virginia Public Access Project.

The former Massachusetts governor holds a narrow lead since January, $2 millon to $1.9 million.

VPAP’s analysis, which uses data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics, does not include smaller, unitemized donations. But it still provides a glim pse into fundraising in the battleground state.

VPAP also has an updated Zip code map of the state showing each contender’s areas of fundraising strength.
