Election ’08: Who’s giving to whom and how much

June 25, 2008

In light of newly-christened flip-flopper Sen. Barack Obama’s announcement that he’ll not be taking public campaign funds, I thought it might be helpful to pass along a link originally given to me by one of my college professors.

OpenSecrets.org’s Presidential page has a nice little tool that keeps track of who’s been giving how much to which campaigns. You can also surf around and look up the finances of various members of Congress and compare the money they’ve raised with that of their challengers (I used my home state of Washington here, just for example’s sake).

As Nick Burns would say, “You’re welcome!”
