A Snapshot of Presidential Candidate Finance Part 1

Posted on August 18, 2015. Filed under: Politics | Tags: , , , , , |

Looking at Campaign finance, and the origin of the contributions
can speak volumes about how well a candidate is faring in the 
Presidential race. The candidates' information will be presented 
in no particular order. The data will be broken up into multiple posts, 
so the material is easier to read and understand.

It is important to note if the majority of a candidate's money is 
in large individual contributions, that lobbyists and special interest 
groups are attempting to buy a Presidency. This is a big concern.
