Of the big donors helping propel the fundraising of U.S. Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, fewer than 1 percent have hit the limit they can donate to his election bid, suggesting cash is likely to keep pouring into his coffers.
Only 40 donors have given $75,800 -- the maximum individuals are allowed to give before the November 6 election -- to the joint Victory fund that Romney shares with the Republican National Committees, according to a Reuters analysis of the fund's first campaign finance filing submitted late on Sunday.
That is a drop in the bucket of some 19,000 named donors -- those who have given a total of at least $200 and so triggered the threshold for federal disclosure. About 2,000 of those named donors to the Victory fund have given at least $25,000 but can give more before hitting the limit, the analysis showed.
Joint funds allow candidates to rake in much bigger checks than are allowed for campaigns on their own.
