Horse-race Electoral Narrative

The video shows how presidential candidates raised money in each state over time. The circle sizes indicate the amount of contribution per capita giving to the candidates by each state. The timelines show the overall money per capita raised by candidates during a particular time.

The amount of contribution is gathered through the Sunlight APIs (http://data.influenceexplorer.com/api), based on Federal Election Commission data released on Feb. 2012.
