One donation from Merced County for Obama inauguration

Merced County may have supported Barack Obama back in November, but a recently-published searchable database at the Sacramento Bee's Web site shows just one donation of more than $200 to Obama's Inaugural Committee.

That distinction goes to Pamela Magneson of Magneson Dairy, Inc. The Cressey resident contributed $250 to Obama's campaign. The full list of donors can be found here.

Nov. 4 elections returns show that Obama received 34,031 votes (53.1 percent) in Merced County.
