A group called the Sunlight Foundation in D.C. today is launching something called TransparencyData.com, which merges all campaign contribution data at both the federal and state level.
We’ve merged all of OpenSecrets data with all the data fromFollowTheMoney.org allowing you, for the first time, to get a clear picture of campaign contributions at both the state and federal level.
Before now, there were two datasets: the OpenSecrets data focusing on federal data, and the FollowTheMoney data, focusing on state data. Now, finally, you can use TransparencyData.com to query, filter, and download this data.
It’s certainly worth a test drive.
