Former President Trump is dominating among Georgia's biggest political donors.

The big picture: Trump has raised nearly twice as much as President Biden among Georgia residents who contributed $200 or more this election cycle, per Federal Election Commission data.

Between the lines: That's a reversal of fortunes compared to nationwide numbers, where Biden leads Trump in fundraising by $18 million.

  • And double what the Democratic incumbent has raised.

Yes, but: The data was collected before Super Tuesday, which virtually cleared the field for Biden and Trump.

Zoom in: Trump drew support from nearly 60,000 Georgia donors — far more than his competitors.

  • Nikki Haley reported 16,205 large donations in Georgia. Biden's campaign reported 6,217.
