According to a Globe analysis of filings with the Federal Election Commission, Obama has raised $227,600 from 700 New Hampshire donors in the past two fund-raising quarters, which ended Sept. 30.
The Democrat has raised more money in New Hampshire than any of his Republican rivals – though former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney comes close. Obama also has just slightly fewer donors alone than all of his potential Republican rivals combined.
Romney raised $216,800 in the state, from 265 donors.
By far, the next most prolific New Hampshire fund-raiser was Representative Ron Paul of Texas, who raised $82,500 ... His money came from 354 donors, with an average donation of just $233.
Texas Governor Rick Perry, who only joined the race in August, raised $33,500 from 36 donors.
Businessman Herman Cain, whose popularity has been growing recently, took in $18,300 from 32 donors.
