Power Search


This search engine allows you to track the political cash flow across several states in federal and state races. It includes who gives what to which candidates (contributions), as well as how the candidates spend some of their donations (expenditures). In some cases, it includes money flow to and from political action committees (PACS), candidate committees and party committees.

All you need to conduct the initial search is the last name of the person, either contributor or candidate. If you have it, also type in the first name. Type these in first name/last name order, such as John Huang.
