Database: Search Valley's 'elite' 2012 campaign donors

The Fresno BeeJune 30, 2013 

A report by the nonpartisan watchdog group Sunlight Foundation calls attention to the relatively small number of people who are making a relatively large number of the nation's contributions: 28% are from "1% of the 1%," or 31,385 out of 314 million people nationwide, the report states. The report was based on federal campaign spending reports for the 2012 election cycle.

This database, derived from the Sunlight Foundation's compilation of California data, highlights the big donors from the central San Joaquin Valley.
