Up-to-the-Minute Campaign Finance Report Data from The NYTimes
The Times Developer Network is now offering data from reports received by the Federal Election Commission through its Campaign Finance API (application programming interface). What was once a set of reports updated weekly, or in some cases daily, is now updated every 15 minutes.
You can find campaign finance information for the presidential and congressional candidates, PACs and super PACs, electronic filings by date and type, independent expenditures, and electioneering communications.
For the full story, be sure to read “Campaign Finance Data in Real Time” by Derek Willis in The New York Times.
