Collection: Money in politics
Description: State contributions can be obtained from the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance (KREF). Data can be exported from the KREF candidate search page. Each record represents a single monetary or in-kind contribution made to a committee or candidate by an individual or some other business entity. Please note that contributions in this dataset have no information on the date made, only a date for the associated election. The full data set contains all original columns. New columns with normalized character strings are searched from The Accountability Project database. Data processing was done using R software and is documented on The Accountability Project GitHub repository.
