Arizona will be the focus of the next “Super Tuesday” as the state hosts its Presidential Preference Election on March 22nd, but Arizonans have been showing their preference already in the form of campaign donations.

Citizens of the Grand Canyon state have given nearly $4 million in donations to 20 Democratic and Republican presidential campaigns through the end of January.

Some Arizonans may not get a return on their investment however as Marco Rubio who received $716,025, the highest amount donations in the state, dropped out of the race yesterday after a poor showing in the most recent primaries. On the Democratic side, Hilary Clinton has received the most financial support from Arizonans. Clinton has stuffed her campaign coffers with $705,244 in donations from Arizona.

In total, Republicans have raised around $2.8 million while Democrats have been able to raise $1.2 million in the traditionally red state.
