FundRace.org allows you to search by zip code or name for people who have contributed money to presidential candidates. Here are some names I found:
Stephen R. Covey, George W. Bush – $500
Karl Malone, George W. Bush – $2,000
Barbara Streisand, John Kerry – $1,000, John Edwards – $1,000
Ted Kennedy, John Kerry – $1,000, Dick Gephardt – $1,000, Howard Dean – $500
H. Ross Perot, George W. Bush – $2,000
William Hilton, George W. Bush – $2,000, Dick Gephardt – $1,000
You can see how much the candidates have spent on airlines and hotels. You can even find out what type of person gives them money. I feel like this is becoming like an infomercial, but that’s not all. They also have city and national maps where you can get an overall view of where each party or candidate’s contributions came from.
The information for the site was compiled (and I’m guessing they created the site as well) by eyebeam.org and I give them two thumbs up. They did a superb job.
They created a sister site to this one called Google Race which uses the Google search engine API to rank candidates based on their association with particular keywords. It’s fun too.
