In 2012, San Diego mayoral candidates raised more than $11 million to compete in the primary and runoff elections. Now, they’re at it again, and inewsource promises you daily updates on the race for cash.

Here’s how it works: Candidates and the independent committees supporting them must report within 24 hours any contributions from individuals who have donated at least $1,000 (within 48 hours for non-monetary contributions). We’ll update those contributions every day. Additionally, candidates and committees must file reports on Jan. 2, Jan. 30 and Feb. 7 detailing all contributions from individuals who have donated at least $100. Those donations will be included shortly after those dates.

The visualization below shows who’s getting the checks and where they’re coming from. The data includes both cash and in-kind (non-monetary) contributions. Use the searchable database below the charts to dig deeper.
