Take the Money & Run: L.A. Gives Most Money to Meg Whitman, Oakland for Brown
When it comes to in-state gubernatorial campaign donations, where's the money coming from? USC's Neon Tommy looked into that and found that for the first half of 2010, Attorney General Jerry Brown saw a majority -- 45% -- of donations come from individuals, businesses and groups located in Oakland, where he served as mayor from 1999 to 2007.
As for former eBay CEO Meg Whitman, who has mostly self-funded her campaign, breaking records, most of her money came from Los Angeles (but more people donated smaller donations from San Diego).
