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.

Hi Sharon.

Just my 2 cents… I am a little surprised at the Ben Carson numbers, because I think he is very popular with the voters. I think he is awesome. His Conservatism is unquestionable. He is a great speaker, but I am not sure he has the “fire in my belly” that Fred Thompson talked about lacking several years back when he was considering a run. We need a fighter – someone who will not wither under fire! I don’t see Carson as a fighter. I see Carson and many others fading as they make their way down the backstretch.

I am not at all surprised by the other two Democratic (wink wink) candidates. A closer look at the individual contributors might be revealing.

… I can hardly wait until you get to Senator Ted Cruz 🙂

… good to hear from you again!
