Campaign contribution information is often publicly available, but the format of that information varies from state to state, the information is often scattered across multiple sources and the information is sometimes incomplete. The Project has compile this fragmented data into a single nationwide database that will allow sustained study about who contributes to prosecutor campaigns and the amount of contributions. This report summarizes and analyzes some of the data from the database. The report will be updated as more data is added to the database and analyzed. This report was last updated on August 8, 2018.
