Federal Election Commission

About the data:

The FEC campaign finance dataset contains committee, candidate and campaign finance data for the current election cycle and for election cycles as far back as 1980. The data for the current election cycle plus the two most recent election cycles are regularly updated. The Committees, Candidates and Linkages tables are updated daily. The Itemized Records, Contributions to Candidates, Individual Contributions and Operating Expenditures tables are updated weekly on Sunday. When these datasets are updated, they include data entered into the FEC database through that date. Please note for financial data complete entry from each reporting period takes about 30 days. Because of this, some information may not have completed the entry process when these files were created.

For more information about the dataset, as well as thorough metadata descriptions that detail all transaction codes, visit the FEC website for campaign finance data .
