Campaign finances in your home town, state and country

Here’s a link to a website that gives you the kind of detail shown in the sample below (for my district) on campaign financing for local and state races.

The intersection of money and politics.

Here’s another link for details on campaign financing for national races. Just type in your address or legislative district(s), and you can see what the money looks like in your district.

Here’s a link to a liberal research site–the results of their survey on campaign financing, regardless of their perspective, provides a good starting point for a discussion about YOUR opinions on whether there should be campaign financing limitations, the role of lobbyists and PACs,  the “corporations-are-people” ruling, and other results about how we fund our political races. Weigh in below.
