Utah was the second-biggest source of fundraising for Mitt Romney during his 2008 campaign. With Jon Huntsman likely joining the race, the two men will now fight over that fundraising pool in 2012.
NewsMax reports Romney might have a leg up:
"I think a fundraising overlap (between Romney and Huntsman) would occur at the level of smaller donors," said Quin Monson, associate director at Brigham Young University's Center of Elections and Democracy. "But there won't be an overlap for the fundraisers, the bundlers who solicit checks and bundle them together.
“Those people, to the extent that they have connections with both Romney and Huntsman, will choose one or the other. … I think Romney has a bit of a head start, both because he's further ahead this time around and because he ran last time."
