Las Vegas area residents contributed more than $50,000 to Gov. Bill Richardson’s unsuccessful presidential campaign last year, much of which was raised during a local event last year. The donors included an attorney who later became a district judge.
Many of the 40 local donors are government employees, elected officials or business people who have contracts with government agencies, according to Federal Election Commission records. The total was $52,163, a small chunk of the $22 million from 68,000 donors to the Richardson campaign.
