  • Pros: 

    This product exposed to me the sheer amount of money in political campaigns.

    Cons: 

    Next, I'd like to see how the money is spent.

    A timely tool for upcoming and ongoing political elections!

Hi guys, I'm Justin from Circa Victor. We strongly believe that it's every citizen's right to be informed about what goes on during the election process. That is why we decided that we would dedicate our lives to understanding and fixing an often overlooked and difficult topic - campaign finance. Telescope is the culmination of 3 years of sweat, tears and sql. We hope you like it! Details: 1. This is the entire 2018 political cycle as of ~ 30 minutes ago 2. We source our data from the Federal Election Commission’s (FEC) raw electronic filings 3. We aggregate our totals from individual transactions and not committee self-reported totals If you are interested in seeing any specific data please fill out a request: http://request.circavictor.com/ Thanks!
