Follow the Money: Updated Daily
By Joe Yerardi | inewsource
UPDATE (11/20/13): As of Nov. 19, campaigns were no longer required to file 24-hour disclosure reports. Once a date is set for the runoff election, campaigns will again be required to file those reports.
Last year, San Diego mayoral candidates raised more than $4.3 million to compete in the primary. 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. We’ll update those contributions every day. Additionally, candidates and committees must file reports on Oct. 10, Nov. 7 and Nov. 15 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.
