Where Georgia's Governor candidates raise money

With the campaign season winding down to a four-week finale and the  threat of a runoff looming, the candidates' remaining cash is critical. 

Below are four maps, two for each candidate. The first shows how much the candidate received in just the last reporting period, which ended Sept. 30. The second shows how much the candidate received total since the fourth reporting period of 2013  that's when Democrat Jason Carter joined the race against Republican Gov. Nathan Deal.

Some quick observations:

  • About three-fourths of total contributions to Carter's campaign — not including those of less than $100, which aren't individually reported — are from Georgia. Of total donations to Deal's campaign, with the same caveat, 91 percent are from in-state.
  • Speaking of those smaller donations, Carter received $288,605 from non-itemized contributions less than $100 in the latest reporting period. That's compared to $53,508 for Deal in that same time. That's not surprising considering the emphasis Jason Carter's campaign has made on smaller donations of the $5 to $15 variety. 
  • Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Andrew Hunt is not included in these maps. His total contributions received were $38,204 ($15,459 latest period) and can be viewed  here.
