President Barack Obama swung through the Bay Area last week like a college kid driving home for the weekend to do laundry.
His stops hovered in San Jose, Redwood City, and Atherton, where he held a rally and hosted the typical Expensive Dinners for Wealthy People.
Obviously, Obama gets a lot of California love in the Bay. Exactly how much love has he gotten in the City by the Bay? $2.2 million worth.
That's exactly how much his campaign has received from individual donors here. When considering that number, remember — because all the Citizens United and SuperPac stuff confuses things — that candidates themselves can receive no more than $5,000 per donor per election cycle.
