Not much money help for Obama from Nevada in second quarter

Of President Obama's $47 million raised in the second quarter, only $82,000 was raised in itemized contributions from Nevada, according to federal records. I have posted at right a spreadsheet with all of the itemized contributions, which include $5,000 from former GOP stalwart Mary K. Cashman, $5,000 from major Democratic donor Steve Cloobeck and $5,000 from restaurateur Jenna Morton. Following a national pattern, of the 199 itemized donors, all but 27 were under $1,000 and more than half were $250 or less.

Said one Obama campaign official: "98% of our donations were in the amount of $250 or less, and small dollar donations are not itemized in the report so this is not a full reflection of our support across the state."

Still, can't imagine those "small dollar donations" boost it much into six figures (if that), so not a lot of Obamalove shown here in the second quarter. Oh, and no Steve Wynn money, either....
