More Ramsey residents cast their vote for Mitt Romney in November’s presidential election, but more than double the number of people from Ramsey who donated money to the Romney campaign, donated to the Obama campaign.
According to an interactive map posted on NJSpotlight.com Friday, 185 Ramsey residents contributed to the Obama campaign from March 2011 through Nov. 2012. Only 89 donated funds to the Romney campaign during the same time period.
