We've run close to 100 reports on candidates running for office in 2018, documenting exactly where their money comes from and which special interests they're beholden to (if any). Look under our "Reports" tab on the menu at the top of the page to go to a particular race.
These additional candidates have reported raising money for their campaigns and have not reported accepting any special interest money, through the campaign financing reporting period ending 12.31.17. To our knowledge, they have not committed to turning down special interest money, but they're on the right track. Please encourage them to commit to running their campaigns without taking any special interest contributions.
