Evansville residents contribute almost $100K to Trump, Clinton campaigns

Nov. 2, 2016 

By Shannon Hall, Courier & Press reporter

Evansville residents donated almost $100,000 to the Republican and Democratic presidential candidates between April 2015 and August 2016.

Being the third biggest city in Indiana, it’s not surprising to see Evansville was in the top 10 lists of donors for both candidates.

Evansville residents helped nab the No. 2 spot among contributions to the Trump campaign in Indiana with almost $66,000. Evansville barely made the top 10 of Indiana contributions to the Clinton campaign, at about $30,000. There were no reported donations from Evansville residents to Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson’s campaign during the 17-month span.

Another Southwestern Indiana town was in the top 10 list of cities that contributed to the Trump campaign: Newburgh. Trump received $18,776.82 from residents of the Warrick County town, a higher total than even Lafayette residents donated to the Republican candidate.

Indianapolis was the top money-raising city for both campaigns, but Clinton received $500,000 than Trump.

 Clinton’s top donors came from college towns such as Bloomington and West Lafayette and several northern cities, including South Bend, Valparaiso and Munster. Trump’s top-contributing cities are centered around Indianapolis with a few exceptions — Lafayette and Fort Wayne — and only Newburgh and Evansville in Southern Indiana.

From April 12, 2015 to Aug. 31, 2016, the three candidates garnered almost $2.8 million in contributions from Indiana residents.
